Abstract:

The article examines the question of the optimum switching of a large number of low-voltage power generating elements with nonlinear volt-ampere characteristics and the leakage currents in the system of an increased-voltage current source. The optimum circuit for connecting power generating elements ensuring with a minimal number of elements assigned voltage and power is found on the basis of the solution to the appropriate variation problem. It is shown that in the optimum circuit diagram every element of the source should work at the maximum power rating in this case the power being generated by the source is less than the maximum power which the source could generate under lower voltage on the load. Questions of the construction of the resulting volt ampere characteristic of source with nonlinear power generating elements are considered.
