Power Electronic Power Distribution Systems (PEPDS) - Plan

A five-year program is proposed to develop the Power Electronic Power Distribution System (PEPDS). PEPDS is a new power, energy, and control distribution concept enabled by ONR-developed technology, including high-power-density high-efficiency power electronics, silicon-Carbide (SiC) power semiconductors, and modeling and simulation design and analysis tools.

The goal of the PEPDS program is to achieve revolutionary changes to system design and operation by leveraging recent technology advances and developing both the applications to use them and the control and modeling capabilities needed to employ them, culminating in a megawatt-level test bed that will demonstrate the applicability to a Navy shipboard electrical system.
