Electric propulsion for cruise liners has now become a standard owing to its several advantages. However propulsion drives have a large impact on the ship power system. This gives rise to the requirement for designers to understand in depth the effects of propulsion drives on the ship network in different operating conditions. For this purpose computer simulations have proved to be a very useful tool. In the paper a typical propulsion drive for an all-electric cruise liner is described and simulation results are shown. Owing to the model complexity, simulations turn out to be computationally quite heavy. For this reason a simplified model has been developed. Simulation results, from the ship network viewpoint, proved to be close to the detailed model ones.
