Abstract:

The report covers a feasibility study on the standardization of existing electrical systems on U. S. Army marine craft. It was determined that 208120-volt, 60-cycle, 3-phase, grounded-neutral electrical systems on all ships--except small battery equipped boats--offer thousands of dollars in savings per ship in operating costs lower installation costs and compatibility with U. S. Army shore installation power systems, portable power plants, and private utility systems. The report concludes that the 208120-volt system applied as described is feasible and should be immediately standardized for all Army craft. Author
