In this paper a new electric ship propulsion system is proposed as combination of a double generator set with a double inverter feeding a wound rotor synchronous machine (WR-SM). Each generator set is composed by a diesel engine directly coupled to a compact, permanent magnet, synchronous generator. A diode rectifier connects the output of the generator to a variable voltage dc bus. The dc bus feeds one of the input sides of the double inverter. The double inverter acts as a multilevel converter and it is able to drive the 3-phase 6-wire motor coupled to the propeller. The two generator sets can operate either jointly or one at a time, depending on the power demand from the drive system. The working point of each diesel engine is determined in order to supply power to the propeller with maximum efficiency.

Abstract

In this paper a new electric ship propulsion system is proposed as combination of a double generator set with a double inverter feeding a wound rotor synchronous machine (WR-SM). Each generator set is composed by a diesel engine directly coupled to a compact, permanent magnet, synchronous generator. A diode rectifier connects the output of the generator to a variable voltage dc bus. The dc bus feeds one of the input sides of the double inverter. The double inverter acts as a multilevel converter and it is able to drive the 3-phase 6-wire motor coupled to the propeller. The two generator sets can operate either jointly or one at a time, depending on the power demand from the drive system. The working point of each diesel engine is determined in order to supply power to the propeller with maximum efficiency.
