Abstract : The Directed Energy Group at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) and the University of Texas Center for Electromechanics (UT) have collaborated to develop simulation models of electrical power systems on specified naval platforms expected to be retrofitted with laser loads. These models of ship power systems are needed to evaluate and guide the integration of pulsed laser loads onto existing ship platforms. The results of the modeling efforts provide critical information needed for the safe and effective deployment of laser systems on existing Navy combatants. They can also be an invaluable tool in the definition of a suitable energy storage system to handle the effect of the transient load.
