Performance Assurance for DC Cables for Electric Ships
Minimizing the weight and volume in a ship cable plant improves system efficiency or provides the capability to carry more critical payloads. Cabling should be as small as possible. This research developed an approach to ...
Power System and Energy Storage Models for Laser Integration on Naval Platforms
High power solid state laser systems are being developed for advanced weapons and sensors for a variety of Department of Defense applications including naval surface combatants. The transient power and cooling requirements ...
Experimental Investigation of the Performance of Two New Types of Soft-Switching Power Converters for Electric Ships
Power electronic converters are significant contributors to system mass, system loss, and system cost in the all-electric ship, and are, therefore, a significant area of interest. This paper investigates the reduction of ...
Power Management and Energy Storage Experiments on a MW-Scale Naval Power System Test-bed
From local utility grids to electric ships, providing power to an ever increasing variety and magnitude of loads requires power grids that are more flexible, resilient, and efficient than ever before. In many cases, these ...
