Abstract : A regulated power supply which may be of the A.C.-to-D.C. type utilizes a series arrangement of inverters because of a voltage rating of these inverters with respect to the magnitude of the D.C. driving voltage available either as a consequence of rectifying an A.C. voltage source or other reasons. The regulator has a self-balancing feature which insures that all of the inverters equally share the D.C. driving voltage and also includes a protection feature which safeguards the inverters against damage caused by a malfunction of any one of the units.
