MetadataShow full item record
The Marine Corps is getting back to its expeditionary roots, becoming lighter, leaner, and conversely ever more dependent on power. Until recently, expeditionary power planning has been an afterthought in the Marine Corps. HOMER (Hybrid Optimization Model for Electric Renewables) is a software tool that will enable Logistics Marines to conduct detailed planning to provide efficient expeditionary power. The focus of this thesis is the addition of Marine Corps systems into HOMER. Specific investigations include an analysis of SPACES compared to a control system, and rapid-discharge heat testing of lithium ion batteries. Results include performance specifications for SPACES entry into HOMER and partial validation of the use of the Kinetic Battery Model for Lithium Ion Batteries.
