Optimal power generation scheduling of a shipboard power system
MetadataShow full item record
This paper studies the optimal power generation scheduling for a shipboard power system. The problem is formulated as a discrete-time Markov Decision Process (MDP). The paper considers the shipboard power system both without any energy storage and with energy storage, and obtains an optimal power generation scheduling for each situation. For the non-storage system, the switch cost during the start-up process is considered. For the system with a storage, a fuel consumption comparison with different energy storage sizes is provided.
