With the U.S. Navy's continued focus on Integrated Fight Thru Power (IFTP) there has been an ever increasing effort to ensure an electrical distribution system that maintains maximum capabilities in the event of system faults. Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM), which has been used extensively for condition based maintenance applications, could simultaneously be used to enhance the existing zonal protection system employed with Multi-Function Monitors (MFM). A test platform with three 5000 watt synchronous generators is being constructed to emulate a U.S. Navy DDG 51 FLT IIA class ship electric plant. This is being accomplished in order to evaluate the feasibility of improving the fault isolation capabilities of the MFM with NILM implementation. The first step in this endeavor will be to electrically relate the test platform to the DDG electric plant. In order to accomplish this step, the fault simulation results from the test platform will be compared to simulated faults using U.S. Navy data from DDG 51 electric plants. This will allow for the fault isolation results from the test platform to be related to the DDG 51electric plant.
