DON’T FOCUS ON RISKS, FOCUS ON RESULTS. — CHUCK YEAGE

The diesel generators used to power the Patriot Missile System around the world demand large quantities of diesel fuel and substantial maintenance – until FCX found a better way. ­ In the early 2000s, 11 other companies attempted – and failed – to develop a power supply for a 270 VDC military aircraft (F-22). A large floating dry dock requiring 50 Hz power was pulled across the ocean to the Grand Bahama Shipyard . . . where 60 Hz was the only utility available. THE WORLD’S LEADING SOLID-STATE FREQUENCY CONVERTER MANUFACTURER The extreme conditions, precise specifications and high reliability for...

In the early 2000s, the engineering staff from Edwards Air Force Base (AFB) distributed an inquiry regarding a power supply for a 270 VDC military aircraft. FCX did not initially respond to the inquiry; however, no viable solutions were presented by the 11 companies that did respond. The engineering staff from Edwards AFB asked FCX to review the specifications. It was not a normal 270 VDC requirement as defined in MIL-■ ■    1 ■    ’    STD-704; this required a fast, dynamic response with excellent voltage regulation. FCX completed its unit and air shipped it to Lockheed Martin's Vehicle System...

POWERFUL SOLUTIONS Replacing Diesel Generators for the Patriot Missile System Patriot Missiles, the defensive anti-missile system designed by Raytheon, are installed around the world to protect cities subject to missile attack. While utility power around the world is either 50 Hz or 60 Hz, the Patriot system incorporates several elements that require reliable 400 Hz power. Therefore, diesel generators are utilized. Engine generator efficiency is poor, which increases the fuel demand. As operating hours increase, the rotating engines and generators require substantial maintenance. FCX developed...

Powering F-35s Aboard Aircraft Carriers Anticipating the deployment of F-35 airplanes aboard aircraft carriers, the U.S. Navy issued a requisition for development of a system to supply power to these 270 VDC aircrafts, with a minimum impact on the existing equipment and space. FCX used its experience with the 400 Hz AC and 270 VDC high-performance power supplies and, by crossutilizing a large portion of the existing 400 Hz system, provided a substantial savings in cost and space. The actual 270 VDC addition is a small pod that can be mounted in out-of-the-way locations. FCX units can be seen on...

POWERFUL SOLUTIONS Solid-State Frequency Converter for a Floating Dry Dock In 2008, a large floating dry dock - containing motor loads for cranes, capstans, ballast pumps and fire pumps - was transported to the Grand Bahama Shipyard. The dry dock required 50 Hz power, while the Bahamas utilizes 60 Hz power. To supply the 50 Hz power needed for the dry dock, two 1,000 KVA Caterpillar diesel generators were required. The generators required huge amounts of expensive diesel fuel instead of inexpensive utility power. A solid-state frequency converter running off the utility power solved this problem. The...
