CIMAC WG20 | Guideline - Monitoring Systems for Marine Hybrid Propulsion Systems

The latest Guideline from subgroup 'Monitoring Systems' of CIMAC WG20 'System Integration' titled ‘Monitoring Systems for Marine Hybrid Propulsion Systems’ is now published and available for download. The Guideline provides an overview regarding the implementation of performance monitoring systems for Marine Hybrid Propulsion Systems. With 'Systen Integration' gaining importance as an important topic for the industry to improve energy efficiencies, the objective of the publication is to contribute to the development and promulgation of multi-source energy system design optimizations for ships and land-based power plants. 

The group focuses on the implementation and optimization of such systems to provide inputs and contribute to the development of guidelines and rules with classification societies, support regulatory development in these areas, as well as further the development effors with regards to the state of the art in system integration design principles. 

The publication can be downloaded from the below link or under 'Downloads' on the right hand side.
