Abstract
In this Phase II SBIR project, QM Power will build and integrate the high performance alternator researched, analyzed and developed during the Phase I SBIR effort with an internal combustion engine using load following power electronics and demonstrate through empirical testing in a simulated shipboard marine environment that this alternator will maintain its high power density and efficiency advantages over alternative marine alternators/generators. The resulting 25kW combatant craft marine generator system will have a weight-to-power ratio as much as 70% less than that of alternative conventional systems weighing in excess of 1,800 lbs.
