Abstract:

This paper describes the application of subsystem summary algorithms for self-contained power system configuration trade-off studies, and presents the results of a recently completed study. The development of summary weight algorithms for rocket turbines and rotating electrical generators is described. These new algorithms are combined with previously developed power conditioning subsystem algorithms in a computer program to automatically study various system configurations. A flow chart of the computer program is included in the paper. The computer program was used to find a minimum weight self-contained power system. Results of the study are presented in this paper.
