Conclusions

A method has been developed for performing extrareactor preloop tests of multielement PGCs by the reverse-current method. An experimental stand equipped with electronic apparatus was developed. Extra reactor tests of single- and multi-element thermionic converters and PGCs with a thermal power of 1–3 kW and cesium vapor pressure of 3–5 hPa were performed. The preloop tests of multielement PGCs by the reverse-current method on thermal stands make it possible to diagnose the quality of a part efficiently at minimum cost.
