Course Overview

This course provides an overview of the present and future architectures of maritime microgrids, associated control technologies, optimization methods, power quality issues and state of the art solutions. The material presented and the contents discussed in this course are based on real-use cases and will be extremely useful to develop insights into the control, optimization and energy management of integrated power systems for maritime industry practitioners and researchers.

Learning Objectives

  • Illustrate the shipboard power system and integrated electric applications in ships.
  • Analyse maritime microgrid characteristics and power quality challenges in shipboard microgrid power systems
  • Categorize the ship's power systems evolution and identify the  directions for future research challenges.
