The proposed system consists of a high energy electrochemical power source in conjunction with an efficient solid state converter-regulator. Potential advantages over a multiple cell stack to provide a stabilized output voltage are presented. Power processor requirements and design consideration are discussed. Three cases representing different source voltage ranges are considered for a trade-off analysis leading to optimized designs and system configurations. Author
