Abstract : New solid state static frequency converters (SSC) can be used in place of motor generator sets to produce 400-Hertz (Hz) power more efficiently. All government installations that use, repair, or build electronic components for aircraft or ships use 400-Hz power. Overall, SSCs can save 20 to 25 percent of the required input power for existing motor generator (MG) sets used for 400-Hz power generation. In most cases, SSCs are cost effective in both new installations and in the replacement of existing MG sets.
