Modern sources of dense electron beams allow the formation of compact sources of dense electron bunches with energies of 3-6 MeV, ps pulse durations, and charges of up to 1 nC. Such bunches can be used for the realization of relatively simple and compact powerful terahertz sources based on spontaneous coherent radiation. The power and duration of the process of such type of emission are limited due to an increase in the bunch length under the Coulomb repulsion. This complicates the effective implementation of the regime of spontaneous coherent radiation for dense bunches. Therefore, special methods for stabilization of the length of the operating e-bunch during its motion over a long electron-wave interaction region should be used. We propose several methods of the stabilization based on the axial bunch compression by self-radiated wave fields [1] and by quasi-static Coulomb fields inside a bunch [2]. The latter takes place in the case of the motion of electrons through the undulator in the "negative-mass" regime, when the Coulomb field inside the bunch leads not to repulsion of electrons but to their mutual attraction.
