Abstract
In Phase I the TCG Team will show the feasibility of their medium voltage direct current (MVDC) casualty power system.The system will include elements similar to shore power connector technology for safety and monitoring.A concept will be developed and analyzed to estimate its cost, weight, volume requirements, and the time required by the crew to deploy the system.A hazard analysis will be performed to ensure the concept is safe to deploy and operate.Technical risks associated with the concept will be identified.Based on the results of Phase I, and any modifications recommended by the Navy, during the Phase I Option the TCG Team will produce draft specifications and provide a capabilities description for the prototype components of the system to be manufactured and tested in Phase II.This may include basic drawing(s) for system components based on the characteristics of the system.It will include design modifications to optimize system design, minimize cost and weight, and meet the requirements of the Navy.Benefits of the new MVDC casualty power system will include an affordable, lightweight, and safe system to provide power to zones aboard ship isolated by damage.
