Abstract:

A literature search was made to determine all known methods of power conversion and to obtain performance data on these methods and data on transducer devices. The following approaches were investigated in detail Transistor Approach Tunnel Diode Approach Electromechanical Approach Hall Effect Approach Magnetoresistive Approach Superconductive Approach Photoresistive Approach. Calculations have been made to determine transducer requirements for each approach. Formulas have been derived and calculations made which determine the resistance ratios necessary between the off and on tranducers in a push-pull circuit to achieve any given efficiency. This information has been used to determine requirements and feasibility of various approaches.
