Abstract:

Dependable electrical power is critical for complex weapon systems. An advanced diagnostic and prognostic capability would improve the Navy's fight-through capability. 21st Century Systems, Incorporated is teaming with the University of Missouri - Rolla and Qualtech Systems, Incorporated to continue research and development of a system that will provide automated health monitoring and self-healing capability for gate-driven electric machines. Proactive Predictive Machine Maintenance (P2M2), incorporates a new type of sensor technology to naturally increase self-healing capabilities and to provide prognostics. Building upon our successful Phase I effort, the next phase of the P2M2 effort will involve integration of new sensor technologies with cutting edge diagnostics and prognostics wrapped in an embedded design controlled by intelligent software agents. This research will also bring about advances in characteristic fault model definition and constructing the diagnostic algorithms. The new Double-Layer Gate-Drive sensor will be implemented and tested on a physical testbed. Wireless connectivity between the sensor, P2M2 unit, and external systems will be developed. The software will be designed to operate on embedded processors located in close proximity of the target machine. P2M2 technology will greatly enhance the Navy's maintenance planning and life cycle management capabilities.
