AESD Auxiliary DC Microgrid Feasibility Study

Sea Jet Destroyer

The purpose of this project is to redesign the auxiliary power system on the Advanced Electric Ship Demonstrator to address the current shortcomings it possesses. It is important to perform a feasible study on this because the current power system has been found as a limiting factor in how well the ship can conduct necessary testing.

Team Steady Supply is sponsored by Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) and is overseen by Greg Donohoe and Brian Johnson, working as class and technical advisors respectively. Team steady Supply consists of three seniors from the University of Idaho: Trevor Larson (Electrical Engineering), Eric Vandenburg (Electrical Engineering), and Spencer Homan (Electrical Engineering).
