Currently, the world's predicament regarding fuel shortages affects the daily activities of nations and directly affects national security. The concept of starving an aggressive nation of resources, in particular fuel, is a war tactic that is effective in preventing the aggressor from accomplishing objectives. This was proven in World War II. National security is affected because shortages leave nations defenseless against invaders. Warfare methodologies will change drastically to accommodate the inability to use fossil fueled assets, unless alternative energy sources are found. The focus of this research is to use computer software and electrical hardware available to the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) to model regenerative braking to support energy conservation technologies and to improve the efficiencies within the United States Navy (USN). The goal of this research is to demonstrate regenerative braking during the deceleration of an induction motor and analyze various aspects during the braking process. This will help in the further development for the "All Electric Ship" by exploring methods to increase its longevity, while improving the efficiency of energy recovery technology. The USN will realize a degree of freedom from fossil fuel and be capable of employing future, more versatile energy recovery systems for naval base infrastructure.
