Abstract
RCT Systems proposes to develop a conceptual design for an Intermediate Energy Storage Module (IESM) that will provide the energy storage, power electronics and controls necessary to keep high power pulse loads from disrupting the ship"s distribution grid and allow the power system to meet the specifications in MIL-STD-1399. In its system tradeoff and analysis, RCT Systems will also consider a novel approach which could result in a significantly reduced total amount of energy storage. The advanced energy storage element for the IESM will be designed with modularity to match the load modularity and recognizing that an element of design risk is acceptable in order to minimize size, weight and cost. While there will be focus on advanced developments in capacitors and batteries, RCT Systems will also consider other types of energy storage which might fit the unique needs of the system energy storage solutions identified in our approach.
