Abstract:

To address the anticipated need of constant-current power sources in aerospace applications, we have developed a 3-kW, multi-channel source powered from a 3-phase, 400-Hz, 115-VAC supply. Special considerations impacting this design were minimizing volume, maintaining system power quality, and providing electrical fault protection. Performance results and a discussion of the design approach are presented.
