Abstract : This report presents the results of the USAF Advanced Terrestrial Energy Study. The objective of that study was to develop a data base of key parameters of selected energy conversion and energy storage technologies. The data base includes present and expected (though 2000) performance goals of the systems. The data base was established through an extensive literature search, surveys of manufacturers and researchers, and statistical and qualitative analyses of the available input data. The results of the study are reported in four documents. This volume of the USAF Advanced Terrestrial Energy Study contains the estimates of specific parameters values for each technology for 1980, 1985, 1990, and 2000 at the following descrete power output levels; 1.5, 5.0, 20.0, 60.0, 100.0, 250.0, 500.0, 750.0, 1000.0, and 5000.0 kW. This parameter survey includes three major sections: one for the energy conversion technologies and two for the energy storage technologies. The output levels for the storage technologies are in terms of energy (kWh) rather than power.
