AbstractThe objective of this project is to design an enhanced mobile electric power distribution system (EMEPDIS). The new system will be comprised of a single, modularized distribution panel to replace the existing 15kW, 30kW, and 100kW distribution panels. EMEPDIS will utilize light weight construction techniques in the modular design as well as light weight, low cost, armored aluminum cabling to further reduce system weight. The system will be compatible with all existing mobile electric power sources as well as future power sources including the 3kW man-portable system. EMEPDIS will be able to manage power from multiple dissimilar sources allowing the USMC to deploy mobile electric power tailored to exact end-user needs. This new system will deliver fully conditioned AC and DC power as well as remote monitoring and control of critical functions while reducing overall weight and size. The modularity of EMEPDIS, along with its capability to manage power from multiple dissimilar sources, will greatly reduce mobile electric power support cost and embarkation footprint while providing a rugged, easily employed power system.
