Abstract : Since the objection to the use of adjustable resistors seems to be based primarily on reli ability considerations, several methods of ad justing and trimming the output voltages of the various regulators were studied to determine if there would be a significant reliability advan tage in replacing the variable resistors with fixed resistor networks. The results of these studies indicated that use of adjustable resis tors, apart from being the most convenient method for making initial regulator adjustments, has sufficient other advantages to make it the most desirable method. Therefore, the recommended solution to this problem is the continued use of adjustable resistors for the purpose of making initial voltage adjustments at the time of manu facture, and further adjustments or corrections when the unit is undergoing maintenance or repair at a depot.
