Practical considerations for hybrid electric power systems onboard ships

Hybrid electric power systems (HEPS) are one of the technologies that can help to meet the IMO’s GHG reduction targets for 2050. This presentation will provide information on the practical considerations for HEPS for marine power application from the following perspectives: power and propulsion architectures; using renewable energy sources (fuel cell, solar photovoltaic); using energy storage systems (Li-ion batteries, flywheel); application of model-based design; ABS class requirements.
