Abstract : Research continued on voltage regulation and power stability in unconventional electrical generator systems. Test data on the internal impedance characteristics of a fuel cell are presented. Steady state volt-ampere characteristics of both thermoelectric and thermionic generators are given. An analysis of seriesparallel switching methods of voltage control is included. The results to date of a survey of applicable power conversion circuits using power transistors and silicon controlled rectifiers is given. Progress to date in the experimental investigation of efficient power conversion circuits using an input voltage of one volt is presented. (Author)
