Abstract
MODERN TACTICAL MILITARY INSTALLATIONS REQUIRE RELIABLE ELECTRIC POWER TO PERFORM THEIR INTENDED FUNCTIONS. THE ELECTRIC POWER DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS CAN BENEFIT FROM THE APPLICATION OF LOAD MANAGEMENT MONITORING AND CONTROL UNDER THE AUTOMATIC SUPERVISION OF A COMPUTERIZED EXPERT SYSTEM. THE "INTELLIGENT" POWER DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM WOULD OPTIMALLY RECONFIGURE ITSELF BASED ON PREVAILING CONDITIONS (NORMAL, EMERGENCY OR ADVERSE) AND ON THE AVAILABILITY OF GENERATORS AND CONNECTED LOADS OF EQUIPMENT. A SPECIAL CENTRAL DISPLAY CONSOLE WILL INDICATE THE STATUS OF THE POWER DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM AND ALERT AN OPERATOR OF PENDING OR ABNORMAL CONDITIONS. THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING SPECIAL HARDWARE TO IDENTIFY TYPES OF LOADS AND OF DEVELOPING THE SPECIAL EXPERT SYSTEM HARDWARE WILL BE STUDIED AND PRESENTED IN A FINAL REPORT.
