Abstract
TII WILL DEVELOP THE SKELETAL STRUCTURE FOR A PROOF-OF-CONCEPT (POC) DESIGN OF A 1 MW SUPERCONDUCTIVE MAGNETIC ENERGY STORAGE (SMES) SYSTEM AND WILL PROVIDE A CONCEPT OF OPERATION TO INCLUDE DETAILS ON SUGGESTED DESIGN, COMPONENT SPECIFICATIONS, AND ESTIMATED COST AND PAYBACK. THE SMES SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED TO MEET AIR FORCE POWER STORAGE REQUIREMENTS WITH AN OVERALL EFFICIENCY APPROACHING 94 PERCENT. THE REQUIREMENTS INCLUDE, HIGH AC/DC CONVERSION EFFICIENCIES, LOW/MINIMAL POWER LOSS DURING DC STORAGE, LOW COST, AND LOW DENSITY/KW. THE DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING OF SUCH A SYSTEM WILL INCREASE THE USE OF STORED ELECTRICITY IN THE AIR FORCE, WHICH IS MINIMAL IN TODAY'S AIR FORCE. FUTURE AIR FORCE 21 CONCEPTS ENVISION HIGHLY MOBILE, RAPIDLY DEPLOYABLE COMBAT FORCES QUICKLY RESPONDING TO DYNAMIC BATTLE FIELD SITUATIONS.
