The report describes the results of a study conducted to determine the state of the art of DC bias power supplies with high regulation and fractional output voltages. The availability of fractional-output-voltage power supplies was determined by a survey of literature and a canvass of power supply manufacturers. The effort revealed that none was available. A study was then undertaken to determine the feasibility of producing such devices with high output current and high efficiency. Three methods were studied the transistor-rectifier technique, the transformed-diode technique, and the use of unconventional generators based on the Hall effect. The results indicate that the first method is completely feasible, the second is completely infeasible, and the third has potential, but requires further investigation. Author
