A HIGH POWER SUPERCONDUCTING SHIP PROPULSION SYSTEM--ITS CONTROL FUNCTIONS AND POSSIBLE CONTROL SCHEMES
This paper describes the control system for a prototype superconducting propulsion system. The equipment included a superconducting generator providing power to a low speed superconducting motor. The paper covers the requirements of the control system and its realisation. The paper then examines some case studies employing superconducting machinery and describes a range of control systems designed to meet the differing requirements of various ship types.
