Abstract:

The purpose of the program was to develop a reliable, efficient, cost effective, high-density source capable of remote operation under a wide range of temperature variations for at least 3000 hours. To accomplish these objectives, it was necessary to analyze the battery-converter-regulator system configuration tradeoffs and to determine the optimum approach for efficiently matching the characteristics of new organic electrolyte lithium batteries and zinc air batteries to the characteristics of communications and surveillance equipment. This document describes the block diagram circuit analysis and computer-aided tradeoff studies and discusses initial breadboard circuit operation. Author
