New guide on hybrid electric power systems for marine and offshore

A new guide by ABS focuses on the integration of hybrid electric technologies with conventional power generation to develop a hybrid electric power system (HEPS). A HEPS utilizes multiple sources of power, both non-traditional sources (e.g. batteries, super-capacitors, fuel cells) and traditional sources (e.g. internal combustion engine driven generator sets, shaft generator driven by main engine). It is expected that in the future, other alternate electrical power sources such as solar panels, flywheels, and wind (electric) power systems will be mature enough for integration into the electric power generation systems onboard vessels. Vessels with such arrangements also incorporate specialized power and energy management systems that are relatively new in the industry. The application of HEPS onboard the vessel will serve to reduce NOx, SOx and CO2 emissions.   Onboard Documentation The following documentation and data are to be kept onboard for reference by the operator for system operation and troubleshooting, maintenance, repair, and safety: Applicable documents/operation and maintenance manuals such as EMS, PMS, BMS, CMS, FCCMSS, etc. Hybrid electric power system operations and maintenance manual; Hybrid electric power system functional test schedules; Records of safety training of personnel for ships’ handling systems, storage, and equipment associated with fuel cell, battery, and ...
