5. System Simplification 5.1 Conceptual Overview

  • Published 1998


As was discussed in Chapter 1, changing the “DC” method of power distribution to an “AC” power distribution technique can substantially mitigate the cost and complexity of the DC DPS. This was illustrated in Fig. 1.3. An AC DPS eliminates a conversion step in the chain of power flow. As will be demonstrated in Chapter 6, compared to an identically configured DC DPS, an AC DPS has increased power train efficiency and a decrease in power train complexity. Such fundamental improvements in a power system architecture begs the question as to why such a concept would not be universally adopted.
