Abstract

Description

While the primary storage on ships is in the fuel, there is an increasing opportunity for additional storage technologies to play a role. The primary drivers are large pulsed loads. While these loads can, in principle, be operated directly from fuel, it appears that the power system may be smaller, lighter, and more efficient in some specific instances with additional storage technologies.
