Abstract : The reliable operation of critical electronic equipment employed at naval shore installations and other Department of Defense installations requires conditioned electrical power. A conditioned power system is proposed which is potentially one-fifth as costly as power systems employing solid-state or rotary uninterruptible power supplies. The proposed conditioned power system employs high-speed, solid-state power source switching. A 15-kva, 208-volt, 60-Hertz, 3-phase demonstration model of the proposed system has been developed and laboratory evaluated. This model accomplishes power source transfer in 800 microsec. Because of its fast switching speed between two power sources, the system is potentially capable of conditioning power economically for many critical loads.
