Shipboard systems deploy automated protection Academic Article uri icon


  • The electric power systems in current U.S. Navy ships supply energy to sophisticated systems for weapons, communications, navigation, and operation. New techniques are developed using advanced monitoring and control, automated failure location, and automated intelligent system reconfiguration and restoration, to increase survivability, eliminate human mistakes, make intelligent reconfiguration decisions more quickly, reduce the manpower required to perform the functions, and provide optimal electric power service through the surviving system. With fewer personnel available on ships in the future, the system will be essential for maintaining optimal electric power service.
