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, ...
Light-Weight Containment for High Energy, Rotating Machines
Developed a lightweight containment system for high-speed composite rotors. The containment device, consisting of a rotatable, composite structure, has been demonstrated to contain the high-energy release from a rotor burst ...
Optimization of gas turbine generator-sets for improved power density
(American Society of Naval Engineers, 2006-10)
Many future U.S. Navy ships will employ all-electric propulsion systems instead of mechanical drives. To help optimize performance of these systems, studies are under way at The University of Texas at Austin Center for ...
