Generators for producing essentially constant voltage when operating from a variable speed source have been developed. Two types of variable speed constant potential generators are described that obtain regulation without the use of regulators having moving parts. One type makes use of a thyrite regulator to obtain the desired characteristics. The other type is inherently self-regulating and, therefore, requires no external regulation. These generators are sufficiently flexible to allow a wide variation in their design and operating characteristics.
