Abstract : The Regulator/Controller System is designed to mate with the PP-6075( )/U thermopile to form a complete thermoelectric generator. The Regulator/Controller performs the function of providing fuel conditioning, flame ignition and sensing, cooling air, burner air, and output regulation and thermopile protection. Regulation of the output is provided by a shunt regulator, of the closed loop type, that is adjustable from 25 to 32 VDC out. The ancillary items, which operate the thermopile, are provided with a separate regulated supply by the ancillary regulator which is a switching regulator. Ancillary items include the main air blower, the primary air blower, an atomizer, a pump to supply the fuel, an igniter to provide a spark to initiate a flame, and a flame sensor to turn the igniter off when a flame is present. The system is mechanically designed to fit inside an existing thermopile shroud. The concept is to provide easy maintenance by placing specific functions in specific, discreet modules. (Author)
