Direct energy conversion devices may be used as prime movers, refrigerating machines, etc. and are endowed with characteristics well suited to diverse naval applications. Despite this, not much effort has been invested in the U.S. Navy in their development. There is a real and urgent need for the initiation of substantial fundamental work in this area. Developments of thermoelectric converters, thermionic generators, photovoltaic cells, MHD systems and fuel cells are surveyed. A comparison between conventional energy conversion and direct energy conversion in size, weight, and efficiency is made. Potential utilization of these direct conversion devices to our Navy is studied. (Author).
