The rapidly expanding fields of digital control and advanced power electronic circuitry enable researchers and designers to investigate novel approaches of providing shipboard service power requirements. The Shipboard More-Electric concept is based on using high efficiency DC-DC PWM converter modules in place of existing low efficiency high maintenance power distribution systems in the future generation Navy combatant design. This thesis describes the design and implementation of a reduced-order model of a Primary Ship Service Converter Module (PSSCM). Using the Advanced Continuous Simulation Language (ACSL), the PSSCM is simulated to predict performance and stability. Various voltage sources, loads and controllers are studied to ensure the suitability and reliability of the system.
