Abstract:

The report describes the findings of electrical and physical characteristics and environmental effects on system performance of silent, multi-fueled, 10-ampere, 28-volt dc thermoelectric generators PP-6074 U. The units run on gasoline, Diesel, JP-4, JP-5 and fuel oil, and are capable of generating 200 watt-hours of electical energy for every pound of fuel consumed. Examples of Army field applications are presented which make use of the inherent qualities silent, multi-fueled, lightweight and remote-start capability of the power source. Author
