Advanced Power Conversion and Distribution - Efficient Power for JPL Spacecraft

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Advanced Power Conversion and Distribution - Efficient Power for JPL Spacecraft

We will develop a power conversion solution that will increase end-to-end efficiency to 80% or more compared to the 30%-50% efficiency typically obtained through use of Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) converters and linear regulators.  This initiative will address the strategy and capabilities required for optimal spacecraft power system design by developing an end-to-end power conversion solution.  The specific goal is to improve the efficiency and reliability of the power conversion process from the power bus to the end user at the point of load.
