A Novel Power Systems Program at the Naval Postgraduate School
MetadataShow full item record
The Power Systems program at the Naval Postgraduate School is a unique academic endeavor which seeks to both educate Navy officers in relevant advanced technologies and to complement the research efforts on-going at the government laboratories. The move toward incorporating more electric technology into naval combatant shipboard power systems and the requisite analysis of such finite-inertia, stiffly connected systems have driven the development of a program that intermixes power electronics, electric machines, and microprocessors. Through work emphasizing analysis, handson hardware investigation and simulation, the students are exposed to the diverse issues encountered in power system research. The students are also presented unique opportunities to interact on-site with various government laboratory sponsors to further draw the connection between theory and hardware implementation.
