Abstract
SatCon proposes to develop a high power density engine-drive auxiliary power unit (EDAPU) for military vehicles. Our proposed machine type is a high speed permanent magnet generator. A power conversion unit (PCU) will integrate all the functions of converting the PMG power output into 3 selectable electrical outlets: 270VDC, 28VDC, and 120VAC. We plan to develop concept sizing and performance predictions for both liquid and air cooled variations. Our PCU design is a compact topology with limited filtering requirements that will result in a solution that is superior in size, weight, and total ownership cost.
