Performance Assurance for DC Cables for Electric Ships
MetadataShow full item record
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 the fundamental understanding needed to design, specify, and test cabling that has the minimum prudent size with high reliability. Progress requires a convolution of the failure modes with the thermal, electrical, and mechanical environment in which the cable is operating.
