Abstract : A description is presented of an engineering study and development effort to product efficient and practical solid state transmission links (i.e., electrical power control and distribution systems). Two transmission links of the F-106B were re-designed as solid state systems to demonstrate the feasibility of solid state transmission links. The solid state systems used controlled rectifiers and power transistors as power handling devices. Control circuits were implemented with solid circuits, a silicon con-trolled switch, a unijunction transistor, a compound transistor and a complementary pair of transistors. The solid state systems were tested over the temperature range of -55 C to +80 C. Results were good. It was concluded that definite advantages can be provided by the application of solid state techniques to transmission links for advanced aerospace vehicles. (Author)
