    We all see the increasing electrification of everyday things around us, from hybrid-electric and all-electric cars to the handheld devices we carry. What few people outside of the industry realize is that there has been a similar electrification occurring at sea on merchant ships, offshore platforms, and warships. Unlike cars and airplanes, few people use ships today, with the exception of the peo... View full abstract»

    Mirroring the terrestrial power system, naval warships have employed electrical power systems for over 100 years. The design philosophy for naval power systems is expressed well by the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) Design Practices and Criteria Manual, Electrical Systems for Surface Ships, Chapter 300: The primary aim of the electric power system design will be for survivability and continuit...

    Mechanical machinery has dominated the field of ship propulsion systems in the last century. Since fuel accounts for a large portion of the ship life-cycle cost, the current trend of moving toward fuel economy and environmental regulations in marine engineering has led to the efficient use of onboard energy. Incorporating power electronics into ship propulsion systems has been a very common method... View full abstract»

    Thanks to the continuously increasing computing speed, 21st-century new technologies are coming more rapidly than ever before. This has created a paradox that research and development time for new technologies is shrinking; however, the transition time of new technologies into real products is growing. One of the reasons for this growth in the product development time is that, in complex systems, ... View full abstract»

    Energy distribution currently relies mainly on ac grids, in general, and also on ships. With conventional ac motors and generators directly connected to the ac grid, this selection is sensible. As soon as converters are used for the optimized operation of devices, the advantages of ac grids become less prominent. View full abstract»

    Ships have witnessed an astounding evolution in the last 200 years. The introduction of the combustion engine has started an ever-faster change, both in the performance and functionality given by the ships. From the steam-powered ships of the early 1800s to the modern diesel-electric ships, the improvements were significant and increasingly rapid. In particular, in the last 30 years, the design of...

    At the beginning of this century, the IEEE designated electric ship technologies as one of the ten emerging technological challenges of 21st century and started its Electrical Ship Technologies Initiative. The IEEE established the Electric Ship Technologies Symposium (ESTS) and new IEEE standards working groups to develop new standards for ships. 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.
