.: LSV2 Battery Charger Control

The Large Scale Vehicle 2 (LSV2), CUTTHROAT, is a self propelled, fully autonomous research submarine operated at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Acoustic Research Detachment (ARD), located in Bayview Idaho. LSV2 displaces 200 tons, is 111 foot long, with a nominal hull diameter of 10 feet. Propulsion for the LSV2 is provided by a 3000HP synchronous motor system, energized by a dedicated main propulsion battery consisting of 1680, 2 volt, valve regulated lead acid batteries.

.: Project Goal:

This project will research various charging technologies with the goal of reducing charging time and increasing battery life. Once a solution is identified, laboratory simulations will be conducted to verify concept feasibility.
