China sets to the ships turbine generators to power the lasers and rail guns

State media reports China Navy people’s liberation army (PLA) equip their ships with powerful 20-megawatt generators that will provide the necessary energy military lasers and rail guns.

Them developed by the 704 research Institute of China state shipbuilding Corporation – not reported on what the ships in question, however, apparently, this missile destroyers of the type 055.

In recent years, Chinese scientists have made significant progress in the development of integrated electric propulsion (IEP) that can ensure the supply of Navy ships and have a number of advantages over internal combustion engines or hybrid engines.

With three or four new turbine generator destroyer type 055 will be able to reach speeds of over 30 knots (55.5 km/h) and provide power combat lasers or railguns. A turbine generator can also be used on the construction of aircraft carriers as a power source of the electromagnetic catapult.
