I am trying to find the efficiency of a 450 kV (4500 W) tungsten target x-ray tube source in transferring electron energy to x-ray energy. I know that for 100 kV source, the effiency is <1% and for 1-5 MV sources, it is 3-8%, but i haven't found any information for the energy range in between.

Also does anyone have a formula for calculating the bremsstrahlung spectrum emitted by such an x-ray source?
