A 2 MW Flywheel for Hybrid Locomotive Power
The University of Texas at Austin Center for Electromechanics (UT-CEM) is currently developing an Advanced Locomotive Propulsion System (ALPS) as part of the Next Generation High-Speed Rail program sponsored by the Federal ...
An electromagnetic gun power supply as a component of an electric ship power system
An electromagnetic gun provides a new component that must be integrated into the power system of an electric ship. An interesting topology for the power supply is a set of pulsed alternators with sufficient energy stored ...
High Speed Generator Trade Study
This document compares high temperature superconducting (HTS), permanent magnet (PM), and wound rotor (WR) designs of 5, 10, and 14 MW generators driven at 16,000 rpm, 7,000 rpm, and 7,000 rpm machines, respectively. The ...
Flywheel Energy Storage System and Their Applications
The use of flywheels to store energy is a technology centuries old. The confluence of several modern technologies has resulted in flywheels becoming a viable solution for the needs of the transportation, electric utility, ...
Intelligent Microgrid Demonstrator
The Center for Electromechanics at the University of Texas at Austin has a microgrid demonstrator capable of operating at power levels up to 2 MW. The microgrid is designed to interface with the commercial power system and ...
Pulsed Power Loads Support and Efficiency Improvement on Navy Ships
This paper addresses the use of energy storage and high speed power generation to support high power loads and at the same time reduce fuel consumption of DDG51 Arleigh Burke class destroyers. Energy storage can supply ...
