CAPACITOR_SERVES_AS_IGNITION_BATTERY
Developed for use with capacitor-discharge ignition systems to provide independent voltage sourcefor ignition when starting car in very cold weather. Before attempting to start car, S1 is set to ON position for energizing DC-to-DC converter for charging C1 with DC voltage between 200 and 400 V. Starter is now engaged. If voltage of storage battery drops as starter slowly turns engine over, C1 still represents equivalent of fully charged 12-V storage battery that is ca pable of driving ignition system for almost a minute.-W.
