Shipboard Lighting System
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Existing lighting systems in US Navy ships use motor-driven variable transformers for dimming control. It is unable to provide the dimming and control necessary to adjust to the various lighting sources. SatCon Applied Technology Corporation proposes an electronic dimming system that will provide dimming control for the currently deployed lighting system while allowing for future upgrades to evolving technologies such as solid state (LED) lighting. Our electronic dimming system will incorporate SatCon embedded TI DSP controller technology to provide output voltage, current or power regulation and communication link, allowing the dimming system to be addressed individually or in a group as a network. The proposed electronic dimming system continues to use the current power and control cable infrastructure in US Navy ships.
