High Density, High Performance Modular DC-DC Power Converter 2002-01-3260
A prototype 270 Vdc to 36 Vdc, 6 kW power converter with a power density of 120 W/in3 and excellent pulsed load characteristics is particularly suitable for electronic warfare (EW) loads. This converter was developed and built under a Navy Dual Use and Science Technology (DUST) program. As a building block for distributed power, the core power technology exceeds the DoD's Level II requirements for size and weight. This can significantly reduce weight and volume for current and future more electric aircraft (MEA) platforms.
