Research Institution

Diversified Technologies, Inc. (DTI) will develop and build an undersea power converter that can convert DC power between 10 kV and 375 V, enabling an undersea grid network. The lower voltage would be used for local charging of unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs), allowing them to run autonomously. The converter will be bidirectional, so the undersea grid can be powered from shore generators at high voltage, or from local undersea sources at low voltage, such as hydrothermal or wave power generators.
