Spacecraft Power Technologies is the first comprehensive text devoted to the technologies critical to the development of spacecraft electrical power systems. The science and engineering of solar, chemical, and nuclear systems are fully examined together with the constraints imposed by the space and thermal environments in which the systems must operate. Details of present technology and the history that led to the current state-of-the-art are presented at a level appropriate for the student as a textbook or the practicing engineer as a reference.

* Environmental Factors
* Solar Energy Conversion
* Chemical Storage and Generation Systems
* Nuclear Systems
* Static Energy Conversion
* Dynamic Energy Conversion
* Power Management and Distribution
* Thermal Management 

Readership: Students and professionals in engineering (electrical, aerospace and mechanical).

"While there are numerous books and other literature on spacecraft electrical power systems, there are no comprehensive single references describing the enabling technologies used in spacecraft power systems. This book fills that need ... it provides the basics for understanding, which lends itself as a good textbook in a specialty power engineering course."
