Italian Navy is being equipping its fleet with the new FREMM class of frigates, developed under a joint program by Italian and French Navies. They are conceptually new war ships endowed with a hybrid propulsion system, composed by a gas turbine and two electric drives, which can be operated also as shaft-generators. University of Trieste has been charged with developing a software simulator of the FREMM integrated electrical power system and its propulsion drives, which has been recently delivered. The simulator will be employed by Italian Navy for virtual tests and personnel training activities. The paper is focused on the shaft-generator operation of the electric propulsion drives and their simulation. Numeric results are displayed in the paper and compared with factory tests in order to validate the simulator.

Abstract

Italian Navy is being equipping its fleet with the new FREMM class of frigates, developed under a joint program by Italian and French Navies. They are conceptually new war ships endowed with a hybrid propulsion system, composed by a gas turbine and two electric drives, which can be operated also as shaft-generators. University of Trieste has been charged with developing a software simulator of the FREMM integrated electrical power system and its propulsion drives, which has been recently delivered. The simulator will be employed by Italian Navy for virtual tests and personnel training activities. The paper is focused on the shaft-generator operation of the electric propulsion drives and their simulation. Numeric results are displayed in the paper and compared with factory tests in order to validate the simulator.
