Abstract

This disclosure relates to a variable, controllable source of high voltage DC power which derives its input from a lower voltage high frequency supply. The design enables low cost of manufacture and long operating 1ife.because a transformer of reduced voltage is used, and the components are stressed less than those of a conventional power source. A unique feature of the present design is that the high voltage DC level falls to zero when the output is zero. One application for which the power source is suitable is in a feedback electrometer.
