Abstract : This Final Technical Report describes the progress and results achieved during two years of effort in the successful development of lightweight high power airborne transformers. The feasibility of developing continuous duty lightweight high power airborne transformers having typical specific weights of the order of 0.25 lbs per KVA or less at 400 Hz or higher, has been successfully established. Design procedures, methodologies, and computer programs have been developed which will permit the optimization of selected transformer characteristics and detail the design of sinusoidal, inverter, or pulse transformers in the power range of 250 KVA to 100 MVA with voltages up to 200 KV. Volume I of this report describes the technical work done and the results obtained during this transformer development program. Volume 2 is a complete Computer User Manual giving transformer design procedures which have been implemented on ASD's CDC 6600 computing systems in Extended Fortran 4 under the SCOPE 3.4 operating system.
