Description/Abstract:
A "STATE-OF-THE-ART" COMPILATION OF RADIOISOTOPIC POWER GENERATORS (RP G) HAS BEEN SUMMARIZED WITH RESPECT TO FUELS, CONVERSION DEVICES, AND OVERALL SYSTEM DESIGN PERFORMANCE THROUGH 1966. THE FUEL DATA IS LIST ED ACCORDING TO ISOTOPE MASS NUMBER. THE CONVERSION DEVICES DISCUSSED ARE THERMOELECTRIC, THERMIONIC, BRAYTON, RANKINE, AND STIRLING CYCLES. THE SYSTEMS SECTION LISTS THE MAJOR FEATURES THAT CHARACTERIZE RPG U NITS IN USE IN THIS COUNTRY.
