Abstract : The Bureau of Yards and Docks has initiated this task with the following objectives: (1) to determine the feasibility of greater use of 400 cycle power at naval shore facilities, in order to gain the advantages inherent in such systems, (2) to prepare a final report on all work accomplished and recommendations concerning the use of 400 cycle power by the bureau. This report gives some pertinent excerpts from available literature and information obtained from engineers of the U.S. Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory, Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, Sperry Rand Corporation, the Bureau of Ships, and the American Gas Association. Some very useful information is presented on the destroyer TIMMERMAN which was especially designed to use 400 cycle power. This report considers conditions under which it is technically and financially desirable to use frequency conversion equipment. (Author)
