The development of the energy sector in the shipbuilding industry is crucial to sustainable energy development in general, and includes reviews and reforms of investment, the creation of the reliable source of electric power and the optimization of operating conditions by means of scientific and containing approaches in competitive requests.
In the article the problem of modernization of ship electric power systems as elements of ship power plants combined (hybrid) propulsion systems in order to save fuel and service life of diesel generators are considered. For the first time addressed the prospects for the use of double-layer electrochemical capacitors (EDLC), as secondary, and accidental marine energy sources, with the possibility of partial compensation for the lack of power, as well as future promising areas of modeling, optimization and quality improvements in ship power systems in terms of their resistance to changing operating conditions.
Based on preliminary calculations determined by the estimated cost of such systems, identified regulatory issues that need to be addressed in the future.
According to some estimates, aspects such as the absence of effective methods of research, lack of time for rapid inspection of newly built vessels, the lack of means to accurately predict the use of alternative energy sources, depending on the speed of movement of the vessel and operating conditions, the estimated risk of non-objective assessments of energy efficiency and the absence of systemic technical conditions play the significant role in increasing the relevance of the alleged studies.
