The paper presents experimental results from the operation of a proto-type green ship in Geoje island, South Korea. After ground testing with a stand-alone PV generation system, this PV system was added to conventional diesel ship. Proto-type green ship is consisted of photovoltaic (PV) generation system, diesel engine, battery energy storage, hybrid control system, stand-alone and grid-connected inverter. The aim of the green ship is not only to minimize the fuel consumption but also to support the power grid as a distributed generation (DG) in the near future.
