Abstract : This report covers the study of 400 cycle electrical power for possible use by naval shore facilities. The study was initiated to determine under what conditions it is technically and economically feasible and desirable to generate, transmit and distribute 400 cycle electrical power to naval shore facilities at the present state-of-the-art. The study also investigated under what conditions it is economically feasible to use frequency converting equipment for converting one frequency to another. This report presents information on the generation, transmission, distribution and economic factors involved with high frequency electrical power. The report also covers frequency conversion from one frequency to another in connection with fluorescent lighting, high speed electrical motors and equipment. (Author)
