This paper reports on the simulation of a marineIntegrated Electric Full Electric Propulsion (IFEP) system toassess its ability to absorb variations in propulsion or auxiliaryload without excessive degradation of the electrical supplyquality or imposing excessive demands on the prime movers.IFEP systems are expected to yield economic benefits to shipoperators by permitting the capacity of ship engines in use to bemore closely tailored to the electrical demand of auxiliary andpropulsion systems. However, the extent to which these savingscan be realised at times of low demand is dependent on the abilityof the shipboard electrical system to absorb disturbances. In thispaper, simulations are conducted for a variety of frequencies ofload variation, and the results assessed. Measures which might betaken to reduce the observed effects are suggested.
