Abstract : The need for integrated power systems will increase in the coming decades with the increased projected propulsion and ship service power demands for future combatants with advanced sensors and weapons such as railguns and lasers. Integrated propulsion systems will also benefit the signature performance of future submarine classes. For expeditionary warfare ships, combat logistics ships, Maritime Prepositioning Force - Future (MPF(Future)), and support vessels, reduced fuel costs and overall reductions in life cycle cost will continue to drive to integrated power solutions. To meet the need of future ship designs, the Navy is investing in Next Generation Integrated Power (NGIPS) system technology. Additionally, to promote commonality and acquisition efficiency, the Navy plans to implement NGIPS using an Open Architecture Business and Technical model. The four technical architectures are: Medium Volt AC Power Generation (MVAC), High Frequency AC Power Generation (HFAC), Medium Voltage DC Power Generation (MVDC) Zonal Electrical Distribution Systems (ZEDS).
