Abstract:

Shipboard operations can be improved with automated monitoring/control of the power distribution networks using our concept for an advanced electrical power system. Current or future naval systems need a capability to automatically manage and adapt to dynamic shipboard loads, fault conditions and battle damage. In Phase I, an innovative, flexible solution for the Advanced Electrical Power Management System will be developed by our team. With significant intelligent power control R&D experience at CME, we will leverage the software and algorithm work of our research institution partner, Texas A&M's Power Systems Automation Laboratory. We provide the experience with hardware and software in power distribution networks, user interfaces, power electronics, power sources, and military platform operations including ships. In Phase I, we will leverage several technologies from CME and Texas A&M to integrate into a single power analysis and reconfiguration engine with an interface module. We will design a monitor/control system simulation to demonstrate effective communication of essential power network information to ship personnel. The engine and interface module will evolve into the Phase III Advanced Electrical Power System fully capable of controlling shipboard power distribution systems. Our team includes Dr Butler-Purry, an ONR award-winning expert in shipboard power who provides one of the key technologies we will transition during this project.
