L3 Power Paragon products are largely individualized solutions to difficult problems. We continuously develop new, innovative approaches to power delivery and power protection. Our full line offers a full line of engineering analysis and design services includes power engineering and testing, modeling, simulation and software/digital design/programming.
L3 Power Paragon's product development and manufacturing expertise is the result of a long history working in power electronics technology. Our heritage can be traced back to such innovators as the ALS Corporation and Teledyne-INET, which developed the first solid-state frequency converter for naval applications, as well as the MK 84, the first solid-state frequency converter designed specifically to support the Aegis Weapon System.
L3 Power Paragon maintains an experienced engineering development staff dedicated to advancing the technological edge of power conversion and distribution products. Our staff consists of over 75 professional-level engineers and technicians from which a project team is designated and from which various specialties are called as needed. The knowledge and expertise represented in this staff cover the range of advanced technologies required to design and support power equipment from 100 watts to several megawatts and at frequencies from DC to 50 kHz.
Full scale development of new products and power control systems, as well as ongoing Research and Development (R&D) are standard operations within engineering. Power design technology is the lifeblood of L3 Power Paragon engineering, and we have more than 25 technical support personnel supporting our engineering team.
L3 Power Paragon engineering utilizes state-of-the-art tools and technology to support the development process. Extensive design and simulation using PSpice and MATLAB models are performed on all electrical designs to improve design confidence, reduce technical risks and meet customer requirements. Integrated 3-D Computer-aided Design (CAD) systems are used to design and document all new products. Thermal analysis, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) airflow analysis and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) stress analysis are performed directly on the 3-D CAD/CAE models to analyze the design, validate it against customer requirements and reduce the engineering development cycle time. These engineering practices lead to a smooth transition from product design to prototype development and through production unit build.
