    For decades, the maritime shipbuilding industry has been dealing with system integration where different subsystem vendors use different interfaces and components. As a result, the installation of such subsystems in a vessel, and tailoring the interactions among the different subsystems to form a total system solution (a process usually called engineering to order), has required lots of effort and...

    Over the past decades, the growth of international cruise tourism has been constant. The forecasts made by the Ships and Maritime Equipment Association indicates an annual growth rate of about 7%, leading to the triplication of global cruise passengers in the future (from 19 million passengers in 2010 to more than 54 million in 2035). To cover the future market needs, roughly six or eight new crui... View full abstract»

    Many modern commercial ships are electric ships, i.e., they utilize integrated electric propulsion (IEP ), where electric motors with variable speed drives are used for ship propulsion. This provides a number of advantages, such as reduced size and weight, electric power availability aboard the ship, reduced vibration, and more flexibility in generation engine placement by eliminating the mechanic...

    Electrical power plants with diesel-generator sets segregated (i.e., the diesel generator sets are divided into different power buses and physical stations on ships and rigs) on several power buses have become the preferred solution for ships with various operational profiles and corresponding power demands. Examples of such ships are dynamically positioned (DP) vessels with electric power plants ... View full abstract»

    Fuel effectivization and emission reductions have been on the forefront of research for marine power system solutions. The reduction in fuel use was originally motivated by savings on the principal operating cost of vessels. The need to reduce emissions, both CO2 for the global environment and nitrous oxides (NOx) and soot for the local environment, is on the agenda for the m... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

IEEE Electrification Magazine is dedicated to disseminating information on all matters related to microgrids onboard electric vehicles, ships, trains, planes, and off-grid applications. Microgrids refer to an electric network in a car, a ship, a plane or an electric train, which has a limited number of sources and multiple loads. Off-grid applications include small scale electricity supply in areas away from high voltage power networks. Feature articles focus on advanced concepts, technologies, and practices associated with all aspects of electrification in the transportation and off-grid sectors from a technical perspective in synergy with nontechnical areas such as business, environmental, and social concerns.
