Abstract

The generator is described in detail, giving data of the fuel, capsule and the conversion system. The state of development is given including design characteristics and special topics as for instance helium venting, materials compatibility and mechanical behaviour of the system. Performance data of the conversion system and life tests results of generator components will be discussed. The combination with supplementary thermoelectric converters in this system will be analysed,
