In this paper, a demonstrative technological implementation of a shipboard 2.15-MVA generation system is described, along with its modeling, numeric simulation, and some factory tests. The system, named Naval Package (NP), is part of a demonstrative program commissioned by Italian Navy for preliminary evaluations of medium-voltage dc supply technologies aimed at equipping its future vessels. The NP is made by a dual-star alternator, whose two stator three-phase windings feed two full-bridge diode rectifiers, respectively. The alternator (rated speed 6300 r/min) is designed to be moved by a 22 000-r/min gas turbine through a gearbox. This paper will present NP innovative issues, with reference to design solutions, operative requirements, dynamic modeling under normal and faulty conditions, and some factory tests.
