Abstract : The effort is an attempt, without sacrificing reliability, to provide a lower cost Approach Lght System (ALS) distribution system by changing from the present series output circuits to a multiple type with constant voltage and using parallel step-down transformers, in lieu of the present series to series transformers. Moreover, modern Urban Residential Distribution (URD) design concepts are used for smaller and more compact major components. Extensive field testing is required to decide whether the concept is desirable for a standard ALS distribution system. (Author)
