Lightweight Transformer Replacement
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
We propose to develop a semiconductor-based transformer for medium voltage (4160V or 13.8kV) to low voltage (450V) step down applications on ships. These transformers provide ship service power and are used on all ships where primary generation and distribution is medium voltage. Our concept uses high frequency semiconductor switching to reduce the mass and size of these transformers by a factor of 5 to 10.
