Integrated Power Systems (IPS) with DC distribution require the massive use of power electronics for many tasks: 1) the output voltage rectification of generators and the connection of energy storage systems to the IPS, 2) the supply of medium voltage high power users (propulsion drives, bow thrusters, compressors for air conditioning), 3) the adjustment of voltage levels, which is performed by power transformers in AC distribution systems and by DC/DC power converters called Solid-State Transformers (SST) in DC distribution systems. In this paper, an overview is given of the power converters found in the literature and on the market that could be suitable for employment in the mentioned subsystems as parts of a future MVDC IPS. Finally authors propose a structure for an SST to be employed in three-wire MVDC power systems.

Abstract

Integrated Power Systems (IPS) with DC distribution require the massive use of power electronics for many tasks: 1) the output voltage rectification of generators and the connection of energy storage systems to the IPS, 2) the supply of medium voltage high power users (propulsion drives, bow thrusters, compressors for air conditioning), 3) the adjustment of voltage levels, which is performed by power transformers in AC distribution systems and by DC/DC power converters called Solid-State Transformers (SST) in DC distribution systems. In this paper, an overview is given of the power converters found in the literature and on the market that could be suitable for employment in the mentioned subsystems as parts of a future MVDC IPS. Finally authors propose a structure for an SST to be employed in three-wire MVDC power systems.
