Abstract : This interim report describes the results of the first two phases of a 3-phase program to provide designs of lightweight, low volume power conditioning subsystems in the range of 500 kilowatts (kW) to 30 megawatts (MW) as part of the Air Force exploratory development program in high power airborne electrical power supply technology. These designs are based on presently available component technology such as solid-state switching devices, newly developed thyratons and high energy density capacitors. Although these subsystems are to be operated in a burst mode, active cooling concepts have been utilized wherever they would result in an advantage in weight or volume.
