The hybrid electric drive (HED) topology has been studied and reported on for application to the DDG 51 class guided missile destroyers. The Navy tasked an industry team comprised of Northrop Grumman and L-3 Power Paragon to complete a sizing and concept study to apply the HED concept to the CG 47 class guided missile cruisers. This paper reports on the results of this study, including system architecture and sizing, impact on fuel use and emissions and technical hurdles. Additionally, key component developments are reported, including an electric machine topology and sizing study completed by CurtissWright Electro-Mechanical Division. © 2010, American Society of Naval Engineers.
