Abstract : This report describes the development of a solid state lighting controller for use with up to 24 KW airport series lighting circuits. Silicon controlled rectifiers make possible continuous control of lights from zero to full brilliance utilizing less than 5 watts of control power. Tests were performed demonstrating compliance with the design specification. Since these units were designed to meet a variety of lighting loads it is recommended that a study be made of airport lighting requirements to determine the specification for an optimum modular unit which will best meet all requirements. An investigation should also be made to determine what modifications are required to permit operation of these units by radio signals as well as control cable signals. (Author)
