All Electric Ship

The all electric ship refers to a ship whose power generation, propulsion, and auxiliary systems are entirely electrical (as opposed to hydraulic or steam operated systems). Hurdles exist in terms of efficient generation, storage mediums, damaged/emergency states and mechanical equivalence (in terms of power, torque, weight and availability); however, a well-implemented system can produce higher system efficiency (by selectively matching gensets and loadings to the operational profile), flexibility (i.e., shaft tunnels can be avoided while still mounting machinery amidship), reliability and maintainability.
