Electrical and Thermal System Considerations for MVDC Superconducting Distribution on Navy Ships
The interest in using a superconducting (SC) distribution grid on a ship designed with a medium voltage dc (MVDC) system is a natural one, because superconductors (SCs) perform at their best under dc power. The potential ...
Experimental Test bed to De-Risk the Navy Advanced Development Model
This paper presents a reduced scale demonstration test-bed at the University of Texas’ Center for Electromechanics (UT-CEM) which is well equipped to support the development and assessment of the anticipated Navy Advanced ...
Power Converter Design Options for the 12kVdc Bus System
The US Navy’s recent reduction of the dc bus voltage for the new surface combatant, from the original 20 kV to the new target of 12 kV, opens up the design space to a broader range of options than was possible to date. ...
Solid-State Fault Current Limiting for DC Distribution Protection
This paper discusses solid-state fault current limiting technologies. Both solid-state fault current limiters and converters can quickly limit DC fault currents and permit other protective devices to perform appropriate ...
