AbstractIn the modern electronic battlefield, the proliferation of electronic devices has increased the demands on electrical power support systems. In both commercial and DOD applications, effective management of limited electric power requires intelligent control of electrical distribution systems. An intelligent management system will take on the burden of managing electrical energy consumption, in portable field systems, freeing personnel to concentrate on mission objectives. Custom Manufacturing & Engineering will utilize wireless technology and microprocessor controlled solid state switching to develop a true ay e the cost of installation while providing a system adaptable to many configurations. The objective of Phase I is to demonstrate the feasibility of wireless control in a solid state switching power managememt systup. Phase II will field a fully functional demonstration system. The system architecture will support manual/automatic scheduling, alarm changes. The basic system building blocks are: control function, switching and power busses. CME is currently commercializing other similar distributed microprocessor based systems used for monitoring, control and management in conjunction with the University of South Florida for commercial customers and also for Department of Energy. BENEFITS: The proposed system will provide an inexpensive strategy for deploying intelligent power management systems within the military and into new areas including office, commercial marine appplications, hospitals and health care providers, fire and police stations, educational institutions and in the entertainment industry.
