Study of Miniature Engine-Generator Sets

Study of Miniature Engine-Generator Sets - cover thumbnail  

"During the past few years a need has developed for miniature, self-sustained electrical power sources for a wide variety of applications. United States Air Force applications could include power sources for radio and radar sets, paratroop and crash beacons, emergency power sets, remote weather observation stations, etc."

About this title

Interesting, if slightly obscure, technical study of mini internal combustion engine-generator sets.
Authors: Charles P. Roberts, Richard G. Salter, Marion L. Smith, K. Y. Tang

"The purpose of this study is to determine the present state of development of the components of miniature engine-generator sets and to develop procedures and techniques of design, analysis, and performance testing which will be useful in establishing the feasibility and limitations of such units for certain applications."
