VOLTAGE REGULATION AND POWER STABILITY IN UNCONVENTIONAL ELECTRICAL GENERATOR SYSTEMS
GENERAL ELECTRIC CO WEST LYNN MASS
Test data on the internal impedance characteristics of a fuel cell are presented. The feasibility of using a control grid for the voltage control of a fuel cell is discussed and illustrated with test data. Steady state characteristics of a vapor thermionic converter are included. Applicable dc-dc and dc-ac circuits using silicon controlled rectifiers and power transistors are discussed. A qualitative evaluation of these circuits for use with unconventional power sources is included. The results of a survey of available silicon controlled rectifiers and power transistors are presented. A tentative study approach for evaluating the system power source plus voltage converter is given. Author
