ELECTRIC PROPULSION SYSTEMS--THE WAY OF THE FUTURE

Electric propulsion systems are not new to the marine industry, but their application to a wider range of vessels is exposing an increasing number of naval architects, marine engineers and shipbuilders to fewer familiar technologies. This paper looks at the propulsion systems currently available and discusses their relative merits. It identifies the systematic approach necessary to successfully integrate propulsion equipment into the overall ship.
