Advanced Lightweight Scalable Marine Generators for Combatant Crafts
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
The objective of this proposal is demonstrate the design feasibility of an innovative QM Power 25-30 kW combatant craft generator with a weight-to-power ratio of 20 lbs/kW or less, perform bench top experimentation to demonstrate concepts and complete a preliminary design that addresses the needs as identified above. This project will evaluate QM Power's patented and proprietary magnetic circuit to reduce weight, volume and capital cost, improve the reliability and reduce the installation, operations and maintenance costs of the generator components in marine generator applications. QM Power will target reducing the weight of the currently utilized 25-30kW marine generators from about 1,800 pounds to less than 500 pounds by incorporating its patented and proprietary generator design into an existing marine generator system.
