Marine applications of power supply and conditioning interfaces for high power pulse devices
Rutan, Ronald J.

Numerous high power pulse devices are being considered for marine applications, particularly military vessels to include Electro Magnetic Aircraft Launching System, Electro Thermal Gun (ETG), Particle Beam Weapons, High Powered Lasers, and Rail Guns which are directly considered in this thesis. Currently marine vessels do not have the power generation capability to deliver the massive power over the short duration required. The weight, volume, and environment constraints inherent in marine vessels limit the development of a method to store the power and deliver it upon request with a sufficient repetition rate as needed by mission requirements. This thesis mathematically models Flywheels, Superconducting Magnet Energy Storage (SMES), Capacitors, Compulsators, and Batteries as energy storage devices and graphically illustrates pertinent data (weight, volume, etc) per pulse power application for the ship designer to determine suitability for marine vessels.
