Abstract : The feasibility of utilizing an energy reservoir consisting of a passive 60 Hz tuned L-C 'tank' circuit for providing power continuity over momentary source power loss was investigated and analyzed. Results show that such a power continuity device can provide power carry through for a few cycles at low power level. However, the device is impractical for extending power carry through time at high power level. For inductive loads, the usefulness of the network is further limited by the excessive time required to disconnect the energy reservoir from the source. (Author)
