Abstract : In an engineering and experimental analysis of passive devices for providing continuity of electric power, a parallel resonant circuit used in conjunction with a step-up transformer and connected in shunt with the critical load was shown to be feasible. An experimental load of one kilowatt was adequately supplied during interruptions of one-half cycle. In addition, an isolation circuit was developed, which can be used to isolate the critical load and resonant circuit from other loads and the source in case of source failure. (Author)
