Understanding MIL-STD 1399, Section 300

MIL-STD-1399, Section 300A, which has been updated to MIL-STD-1399, Section 300B, outlines interface requirements for shipboard equipment running on AC power. The document provides specific prescriptions for shipboard power supplies, including acceptable limits of total harmonic distortion (THD).

For these and other reasons, MIL-STD-1399, Section 300 is the standard to follow for shipboard military applications. If you’re looking for a shipboard power supply that provides superior reliability in any scenario, make Advanced Conversion Technology your first choice to design you a power supply using their known topologies for meeting MIL-STD-1399.
