Abstract : The patent relates to a power conversion system. Energy from a high-voltage direct current source is caused to charge a relatively small high-voltage capacitor and the energy stored in said capacitor is transferred periodically through a resonant discharge circuit and rectifier to supply a low-voltage direct current to a load which may, for example, be a large capacitor or a battery whose charge is to be maintained relatively constant.
