In this paper the difference in mission profiles between a reference containership and several naval missions is quantified and the importance of a good part-load performance for the latter is established. A general off-design performance model is developed and applied to fuel consumption, as well as to emission curves of prime movers and efficiencies of electric machinery. This technique is used in a general approach to analyze ships with different propulsion concepts. The method, as presented, can be applied to the preliminary design of any platform system. Although the method as such is well established, its consequent use in integrated platform design is presented in this paper, particularly for determining total annual emission profiles.
