Abstract : This system covers the study, design and optimization of the major components and system of the experimental Silent Compact Auxiliary Power (SCAP). This system converts heat from burning common hydrocarbon fuels into useful electrical power. The hermetically sealed unit consits of a mercury boiler and preheater, 24,000 RPM turboalternator pump unit, air-cooled mercury condenser and necessary controls. Due to the high mercury consdensing temperature and resultant low-coolant air velocities, the system has the potential of being inaudible to the human ear at 100 feet under very quiet conditions.
