3 Background:  Advanced Electric Ship Demonstrator (AESD) also known as “Sea Jet”  1/4 scale model, Length: 133 feet, Weight: 239,000 lbs, Location: Bayview, Idaho  AESD is used for a variety of different tests and experiments (eg. Acoustic data collection, Hull modification, Motor types)  Propulsion System is powered by 720 Batteries  Auxiliary System is powered by 4 UPS  Shore power, Diesel Engine used for charging 3

4 Problem Definition:  This is a Feasibility Study with the following objectives:  Replace the Four Uninterrupted Power Supplies (UPS)  Provide Uninterrupted Power Flow to Every Auxiliary Load.  Increase the Duration of Battery Run Time (Increase Quiet Mode Run time)  Decrease Charge Time for Batteries (Decrease Time Between Quiet Mode Runs)  Decrease Acoustic Contamination 4

5 What is an uninterruptible power supply (UPS): 5 PROS  UPS provide a Load with power at all times  During connection to Shore/Diesel Generator, Load is powered and battery is charging.  During Quiet Mode Runs the Battery supplies the Load with power CONS  UPS are not designed to run on the internal batteries for extended time  UPS are not designed to charge quickly  UPS are not designed to minimize acoustics (Inverters)  4 UPS = 4 Inverters = Loud SHORT QUIET MODE RUNS LONG CHARGE TIME ACOUSTIC CONTAMINATION

6 Current Design: 6

7 Design specifications:  Remove the (4) uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) causing unwanted acoustics.  Continuous power supply to the loads at all times.  Draw power from a common bus.  Batteries capable of providing power for more than 45 minutes. 7

8 Design process:  Brainstormed/researched DC microgrids  Obtained load profiles from NAVSEA  Calculated power consumed by the auxiliary power system  Determined the number of batteries needed 8

9 Load information: With Onboard Data Acquisition System (ODAS) equipment off: UPS #1 – 6.0A UPS #2 – 13.9A UPS #3 – 2.0A UPS #4 – 3.3A With ODAS equipment on: UPS #1 – 17.4A UPS #2 – 18.5A UPS #3 – 7.3A UPS #4 – 3.3A UPS #4 has weak batteries causing ODAS configuration not to be utilized for this unit. 9

11 Design Schematic # 1 11

12 Design #1 Calculations 12

13 Design Schematic # 2 13  Auxiliary System ties into Propulsion System  Auxiliary load is roughly a 12% increase to the connecting string  Vital Loads have power at all times  Looking into DC switchboards to connect to multiple strings to divide load

14 Design #2 Calculations 14

15 Constraints:  Space: Current UPS dimensions approximately 4*(4ft. by 2ft. by 2ft.). Battery dimensions approximately 24*(12 in. by 6 in. by 4 in.) SPACE not a problem.  Cost: Design #2 will be cheaper based on less materials and components. 15

16 Options Considered  Current Lead-Acid Batteries 40A/Hr)  Lithium-Ion Batteries 50A/Hr)  Fuel cells (not feasible) Size needed for storage cost  Back up battery bank for Design # 2  Types of Inverters, most cost effective and easy to implement 16

17 Design Tradeoffs 17

18 Project Learning  Gained knowledge of DC microgrids  A better understanding of one-line diagrams  Basic battery bank design  Site visit  The operations and uses of the AESD 18

19 Budget:  Site Visit:$70.00  Expo Poster:$20.00  Total:$

20 Schedule:  Start of Semester: January 10, 2011  Detailed Design Review: February 15,2011  Snapshot Day: March 8, 2011  Expo: April 29, 2011  Logbooks Due: May 5, 2011  Final Report: May 5,
