One of the most important issues that need to be resolved before DC power systems are feasible to be introduced as architectures for naval marine power systems (MPS) is the protection of the system against faults. Techniques are being developed to control fault current levels by fast acting control using power electronic systems. These techniques need to be(More)
Arc fault are a common fault in electrical systems and can go undetected by traditional protection schemes and cause significant damage. To investigate the characteristics of arc faults in DC systems and their detection methods, an arc generation unit is described and arc characterization during initiation is investigated in this paper. Different conditions(More)
