Abstract

DC distribution is being considered as an attractive alternative to its traditional AC counterpart in many fields of applications and, in particular, for shipboard power systems. The adoption of a DC distribution network makes it possible and sometimes necessary to radically revise the technology of the generation systems in many regards. Not only frequency-related constraints are removed, allowing for high-speed smaller generators to be used, but new fault-tolerant configurations, involving power electronics, generation control and management too, become feasible as a natural alternative to the traditional arrangement of AC power plants. In this paper some of these new technological scenarios are outlined, referring to state-of-the-art realizations as well as to novel concept designs presently under development and investigation.
