Abstract:

Many proposals for future power systems for warships are extant. Anticipated improvements in capability operating economy, and signature reduction may not be uniquely associated with these power systems. Alternatives are available for constructing variable speed drives and prime movers for ships with electric drives. These alternatives may open new design possibilities.
