A Cost-effective and Emission-aware Power Management System for Ships with Integrated Full Electric Propulsion

Research output: Research - peer-reviewJournal article

Abstract

The extensive exploitation of electric power in ships enables the development of more efficient and environmentally friendlier ships, as it allows for a more flexible ship power system operation and configuration. In this paper, an optimal power management method for ship electric power systems comprising integrated full electric propulsion, energy storage and shore power supply facility is proposed. The proposed optimization method is exploiting an interactive approach based on particle swarm optimization (PSO) method and a fuzzy mechanism to improve the computational efficiency of the algorithm. The proposed fuzzy-based particle swarm optimization (FPSO) algorithm aims at minimizing the operation cost, limiting the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and satisfying the technical and operational constraints of the ship.
