Hybrid Power Systems for Smart Marine Power Grids: Demonstration and Case Study

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


Nowadays, the coastal communities around the world face challenges related to increasing energy consumption, rising energy costs, enchaining of conventional or non-renewable energy resources, climate change, environmental problems, and so on. Therefore, many countries intend to implement different policies to develop clean energy production. There has been a new paradigm in policy from the utilization of greenhouse gases (GHGs), particularly CO2, toward sustainable energy resources to access a high level of security and reliability. This chapter discusses the new trends of hybrid marine power systems and analyzes various sustainable resources, such as PV, tidal turbines, and wind turbines. In addition, the applications of various battery systems to alleviate the randomness and unpredictable features of green energy resources have been studied. In this regard, the capability of various types of energy storage units, such as electrochemical, electromagnetic, and thermal, are presented. The restrictions and opportunities of combining the various technologies in the ship power systems have been investigated from both economic and environmental perspectives. Finally, the energy management problem of two case studies of sero-emissions ferry boats as a promising way to reduce GHGs is presented.
