Modelling and simulation of a virtual hybrid system for sub IMO vessel applications

Hybrid powertrains, based on diesel main engines, e-motors, batteries and other electrified propulsion or auxiliary components need careful system sizing to balance benefit and cost. Systems modelling in order to evaluate component sizing and hybrid functionalities of the differently sized components is therefore an important task. The presentation will give an overview about the use case of a sub IMO hybrid vessel being virtually hybridized within the AVL system modelling tool CRUISE M.
