Abstract:

The technical objectives of this project were to perform shipboard power system performance metric refinements, early-stage assessment computational tool investigation, and the application of these to NGIPS alternative architectures and technologies. Progress towards metric-based optimization approaches to early-stage design exploration is described. The establishment of a notional medium-voltage dc system for use in system studies is discussed. The development of early-stage modeling techniques is described. The results of studies focused on the energy storage sizing and location are included. Finally, an approach for early-stage modeling of power system protection schemes is included.
