Abstract:

The patent describes a circuit for charging a storage battery from a three phase AC line. The device employs silicon controlled recitfiers which are controlled by voltage regulated triggers incorporating feedback from a shunt resistor in the battery charging circuit for charging current control. The design also uses an adder between the current sensing shunt and the thyristor control assembly increased reliability and smoother regulation are obtained.
