Abstract : Tactical military systems rely extensively on power in the field. Generating capacity requirements can be minimized by relying on state-of-the-art load management techniques. This report provides an overveiw of the techniques used, and indicates that smaller energy management systems (EMS) in particular may be applicable to tactical military systems. The report identifies load management techniques and equipment whose application will: (1) reduce the extent of generation equipment needed by tactical systems; (2) improve equipment utilization, reducing fuel consumption and operating cost, (3) improve system reliability/availability, and (4) permit better management of equipment operation and resources in meeting mission goals. Appendix A contains a detailed discussion of remote control systems used for load management, Appendix B contains a listing of selected EMS manufacturers, and Appendix C contains descriptive literature on selected energy management systems.
