BARE BASE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Design data are given for an instant, do-it-yourself electric power system for temporary airports which may be transported by planes anywhere in the world, and set up for operation within 72 hours. The Bare Base electrical system is the first known air mobile system having high voltage generation and transmission (primary) and a transformed low voltage (secondary) distribution at the using points. It features a hard wire equipment safety grounding conductor from the generator to the very last piece of equipment. The primary or high voltage portion is 4160V, three phase-three wire-grounding 60 Hz and the secondary are low voltage portion is 120/208V three phase-four wire-grounding-60 Hz.
