Abstract:

"SatCon Technology Corporation proposes to develop a modular, expandable 60 Hz to 400 Hz power converter system for shipboard power conversion applications. The proposal objectives in support of this converter are twofold. The primary objective will be toimplement a converter that meets the output power, voltage regulation, transient response, and nonlinear load requirements defined by Navy SBIR # N02-023 and the references given by that SBIR, specifically Reference 2, "Weapon Power Converter ProcurementSpecification, dated 5/15/01". The second objective will be to implement a modular control topology that will allow for parallel operation of multiple converters into a common load while maintaining independent control and operation of the individualconverters. In this manner higher power 400 Hz load requirements can be met by parallel connection of multiple converters into the common load while drawing power from a single common 60 Hz source. The modular, stackable design will allow multiple 60 Hzto 400 Hz converters to be connected in parallel to meet higher power load requirements. Independent control of each converter will minimize unwanted interactions and circulation of power between individual converters and will allow each converter tosource an equal portion of the net load. The control topology can be applied to higher power converters as well, increasing system flexibility.The primary commercial use of the resulting con
