|Summary||The goal of this research is to develop a functionally integrated architecture and design simulation environment to implement automated methods for exploring different electrical distribution system tradeoffs in a total ship context in order to find optimum ship designs in terms of operational effectiveness metrics. To date, there has not been much Navy in-house effort to model and explore different electrical power system design tradeoffs at the conceptual level. There has been little success in providing conceptual integrated ship electrical system models. The proposed design environment will provide methods for performing interoperability analysis of system components and provide design metrics such as ship electrical system operational effectiveness mapped to overall ship system effectiveness in the areas of survivability, vulnerability, and warfighting. The simulation design environment provides methods for evaluating the performance of both the physical layout of the power system components and the dynamic response characteristics, yielding the resulting affect on the survivability of the overall ship system in a warfighting context. Ship power requirements will vary greatly depending upon the top speed, hull form, weight disbursement, survivability, and weapons - therefore different combinations of generation and distribution equipment will be tested for different hull architectures and weapon configurations.|
