Abstract : This invention describes a switching regulator capable of performing open-loop functions. The inherent nature of the circuit provides a constant power translation regulator with short circuit dropout protection. Normal voltage or current regulation may be obtained by utilizing a control winding provided for that purpose. A free-running or locked blocking oscillator circuit in combination with a pulse width controlled switching regulator sustains its own drive and regulation functions. Measured efficiencies from 90 to 99 percent are obtainable with both resistive and line modulator type loads. (Author)
