Abstract : The feasibility in integrating a centralized monitor and control system with the post-1975 air mobility electrical generation and distribution system was investigated. A centralized monitor and control system was found to have several advantages for the power system, which is a dispersed, interconnected system consisting of from two to four generator plants. The monitor and control system can be justified on the basis of manning cost reduction alone for a power system consisting of three or more plants. Several alternative approaches were identified as being applicable to the monitor and control system. The selected system uses wire cable, time-division multiplexing, and baseband modulation as a means of transferring commands and data, and uses a high degree of automatic control at the central station. A conceptual design of the selected system is presented in the report. (Author)
