Abstract
A survey was made of batteries, engines and fuel cells to identify systems capable of providing the power required by a 14 ton submersible for propulsion, heating and emergency life support. Volume and weight limitations make it necessary that any new system have an energy density about three times greater than that of the lead-acid battery which is presently used in submersibles. Options of either a 20 kW electrical system or a 10 kW electrical plus 10 kW thermal system that makes use of waste heat for diver heating were studied.
