Abstract : Information is presented concerning the feasibility of miniature engine generator sets as power sources for 35 to 400 watts capacity. A summary is given of the present and potential performance characteristics of miniature reciprocating internal combustion engines and miniature a.c. and d.c. generators. Over all weight. volume, and fuel consumption data are presented. both for specific prototypes in their current state of development, and for potential systems. Reliability, the most serious problem in this size of equipment. is discussed. An outline is included of optimum design features for miniature engines and generators for this type of application.
