It is expected that the specialized weapons and sensory systems of future naval surface combatants will present much more challenging loads to the power systems in terms of increased magnitude and more dynamic characteristics. As such, it is anticipated that energy storage may play a significant role in accommodating these types of loads in future systems. The energy magazine (EM) concept has been proposed as one approach for incorporating these types of systems into future, as well as existing, platforms. The EM is envisioned as a power converter with inherent energy storage capability, providing buffering between connected loads and the shipboard power generation system. This paper presents results from power hardware-in-the-loop (PHIL) simulation experiments with a 200 MJ battery-based energy magazine supplying pulsating loads.
