Abstract
AN EMISSION-CONTROLLED DEVICE FOR LIMITING TERMINATING CURRENT IN UTILITY POWER LINE TRANSMISSION AND DISTRIBUTION NETWORKS HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AND DEMONSTRATED EXPERINMENTALLY BY RASOR ASSOCIATES THROUGH FUNDING BY THE ELECTRIC POWER RESEARCH INSTITUTE. BECAUSE OF ITS AUTOMATIC INSTANTANEOUS RESPONSE TO LIMIT CURRENT SURGES AND OVERLOADS, AND BECAUSE IT MAKES POSSIBLE THE USE OF SIMPLE MICHANCIAL SWITCHES FOR INTERRUPTING THE MOST SEVERE FAULTS IN HIGH CURRENT SYSTEMS, THIS DEVICE MAY SUBSTANTIALLY IMPROVE THE EFFECTIVENESS AND SURVIVABILITY OF SHIPBOARD ELECTRIC POWER SYSTEMS. THE OBJECTIVES OF THE PROSPOSED PHASE I WORK ARE TO DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY OF THE EMISSION FAULT CURRENT LIMITER (EFCL) IN THIS APPLICATION BY DESINGNING AND COST-ANALYZING A REFERENCE EFCL FOR AUGMENTING OR REPLACING EXISTING CIRCUIT BREAKERS IN SHIPBOARD ELECTRIC POWER SYSTEM; TO DESIGN A PRE-PROTOTYPE EFCL BASED ON THE SHIPBOARD REQUIREMENTS FOR TESTING IN PHASE II; AND TO PREPARE A COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAM FOR PHASE II LEADING TO TESTING OF PRODUCTION MODEL IN PHASE III.
