Abstract : The patent describes a static switch operated upon sensing a loss of a primary power supply for providing a rapid temporary connection of a secondary power supply to a load. Slower acting power contactors are also energized and their operation provides a permanent connection of the secondary power supply to the load and also provides means for disconnecting the path of secondary power through the static switch.
