noob questionFrom the nuke sub thread. Applicable to SSK's too.
BHEL Annual Report states that they delivered first indigenously developed Reserve propulsion motor and a 500 kW Main Motor Generator for submarine applications in 2020-21
BHEL is working with Navy to develop a Lithium-ion battery suite for submarine applications.
BHEL has developed a 350 kW reversible Permanent Magnet Synchronous propulsion unit which has successfully completed 2500 hours of endurance testing. ( Possibly a subscale prototype for SSK/SSN drive motor)
is this pumpjet propulsion??
