Summary
The SNAP I development program was initiated to develop a 500-watt turboelectric power conversion system for space applications, Superheated mercury vapor was used as the heat conversion working fluid. The conversion system was to obtain thermal energy from the decay of a radioisotope fuel such as Ce144 . Each of the major components and systems is summarized with respect to initial design objectives, development progress to the point of program termination, results obtained from tests and, where indicated, future growth potential. Reference is made to 10 other reports which describe, in detail, the major components of this power generating system. Also included is a bibliography of documented reports that are related to the power conversion system design criteria or system integration into a flight vehicle. (auth)
