Modeling and Simulation of Electric Ships’ Power System Components and Their Interaction
(Society for Computer Simulation International, 2007)
Models of propulsion motors, generators, gas turbines, and power converters are used to determine weights and volumes, evaluate designs, and predict performance of power system components for all-electric navy ships. The ...
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, ...
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 ...
