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 ...
Flywheel Batteries for Vehicles
Energy storage flywheels are useful in power conditioning applications, i.e. when there is a mismatch between the power generated and the power required by the load. Two examples of this mismatch are a temporal mismatch ...
Design and analysis of a 20 MW propulsion power train
The electric ship research program at the University of Texas at Austin focuses on the development of power system technology for future electric ships. The main goal of the on-going research activity is to identify critical, ...
Some Benefits of Pulsed Alternators as Electromagnetic Gun Power Supplies on Power Systems for Future Electric Ships
An electromagnetic gun provides a new component to be integrated into the power system of an electric ship. Electromagnetic guns have been fired successfully using either capacitors, inductors, or rotating machines to store ...
Flywheel Batteries Come Around Again
Today's flywheel batteries, embody technological advances, and they are serious contenders for a variety of important energy-storage applications. They are, for example, competitive with chemical batteries in applications ...
Dynamic Simulations of a Large High-Frequency Power System
(Society for Modeling & Simulation International, 2011)
Dynamic simulations to assess performance aspects of a large high-frequency power system have been conducted. The analysis uses a model of an 80-MW power system for an all-electric ship. The model, developed in the ...
