Abstract:

To reduce the costs of military power supply and distribution systems, the Electronic Power Specification Standardization EPSS activities, supported and driven by coalitions of the industry, is developing two interrelated reference documents 1 Specification Language, and 2 Building Codes. Specification Language imparts integrity to the power system specification process and the resulting products. Building Codes are based on available high-end commercial products, and indicate their expected performance. The EPSS strategy is to provide the rational for the commercial power supply manufacturers to conform to these developing industry standards. Military power supply users will be able to confidently select needed resources from the commercial suppliers that conform to these EPSS standards. EPSS is sponsored by the Open Systems Joint Task Force from the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
