Abstract : Programmed increases of power dependent systems, and advanced concepts for their broad-based employment indicate a vital need to resolve the Army's quantity/quality electrical power problems. In the event of a tactical emergency, sustained reliance on military generators may introduce serious logistical challenges. Replacement of power sources when losses occur may be difficult. Technical support to accomplish paralleling of alternate sources may be in short supply. Demands for precise power to operate critical items may necessitate establishing priorities for electrical usage. Transfer from commercial to military power may cause system failures, especially to high-tech computer based items. To increase operational flexibility and reduce wear and tear on military generators, the Army should be capable of utilizing any commercial source. However, they must be able to shift to military power sources with minimum interruption. Power conditioners are the key to resolving the quantity/quality dilemma. They provide a means to operate all military systems from any world-wide power source regardless of voltage, frequency or precision. They are capable of altering the source characteristics of voltage and frequency to match the input requirements of all military equipment.
