Dynamic simulations to assess performance aspects of a large high-frequency power system have been conducted. The analysis uses a model of an 80-MW power system for an all-electric ship. The model, developed in the Matlab/Simulink environment, includes several power generation units, two propulsion power trains, an energy storage system, a high-power pulse load, and several service loads. Three case studies were addressed. The first considers the response of the power system to a high-power step load, representing a sudden request for acceleration of the ship. The second deals with the effects of a partial loss of generation during operation. The third addresses the effects of load drop on the power system.
