Abstract

Military aircraft systems’ power losses are occurring during the loading operations; loading and unloading causes the aircraft systems to lose power. The primary aircraft power source is provided by a 400Hz Ground Power Units (GPU). This GPU provides power to interior lighting, the aircraft cargo compartment, and other electrical systems (i.e. bus). The issues are during loading and unloading on the aircraft, which causes dropout of aircraft power supplied by the external 400Hz GPU. The majority of the military aircraft require a high voltage and a high current with a 270V power output. This thesis analyzes using Feed-Forward PWM Boost DC-DC Control Converter to help maintain 270V power output. The Feed-Forward PWM Boost DC-DC Control Converter design equations are operating in Continuous Conduction Mode (CCM) and all theoretical simulation responses were verified using Saber circuit simulator. The design and simulation results are documented in this thesis
