Abstract : A study converter is being built to evaluate the converter design and to determine the actual performance of the power modules. All of the power modules to be used in this converter have been built and tested under steady-state conditions with good results. A heat exchanger using Pin Fin construction was built during this quarter. The results of tests on this heat exchanger indicated that the design did not satisfy the required conditions. As a result, other heat exchanger configurations were evaluated. A Twinfold Lanced and Offset construction was selected as the best system for use in the final generator. (Author)
