Abstract:

The success or failure of any equipment improvement program must be measured in terms of the ultimate benefits derived by the fleet and whether the resultant benefits were worth the time, effort and funds expended. In consideration of this criteria, the DART-TYCOM 400-Hz Motor-Generator Power Systems Improvement Program must be deemed a success. The Program was developed by the Naval Ship Engineering Center NAVSEC in mid 1971 to combat the numerous casualties and excessive downtimes experienced by the 400-Hz power systems supplying critical loads onboard U.S. Navy surface ships. By concentrating its effort over the next four and one-half years in five major areas - logistics support, hardware reliability, training, Fleet support and poweruser equipment systems interface - the Naval Ship Engineering Center was able to effectively increase the on-line availability of the 400-Hz motor-generator power systems.
