Abstract : A new static AC/DC portable military power source providing either 115 V, 400 Hz, AC or 28 V DC, or a combination of both, is described. The primary power source for the AN/GSQ-152( ) Power Supply Set is a thermoelectric generator operating in parallel with a 5.5 Ah nickel cadmium battery. The combined DC output is in turn fed to a static 115 V, 400 Hz inverter positioned atop the battery. The output results in either 28 V DC at 20 amperes or 115 V AC at 420 watts, or a combination of both, at a power level which does not exceed the limitations of the primary power source. (Author)
