Direct drive electric ship propulsion can offer increased flexibility and reduced overall fuel consumption compared to geared mechanical systems [Davis 1987, Doerry 2007]. As a well-established technology, induction motors are a dependable and economical option for electrically controlled ship propulsion, but their size and weight are large due to the(More)
This project investigates the use of a high speed, squirrel cage induction generator and power converter for producing DC electrical power onboard ships and submarines. Potential advantages of high speed induction generators include smaller size and weight, increased durability, and decreased cost and maintenance. Unfortunately, induction generators require(More)
