Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

Several recent and anticipated developments in marine electrical system engineering must be considered in the context of power system protection. These include: the introduction of large-scale IFEP (Integrated Full Electric Propulsion) systems, where the role, reliability, availability and survivability of the power system have become more critical than before; the introduction of hybrid ac/dc power systems and powerconverter interfaces, which have a strong influence on the behavior of the overall system; increased requirements for redundancy and automatic power system reconfiguration, particularly in military applications where security of supply and continued operation in battle-damaged modes is essential; the introduction of loads such as EMALS (Electro-Magnetic Aircraft Launch System) and advanced weapons systems, which often require conditioned power supplies. Such developments present a number of issues and challenges associated with the protection of the power system; these issues and potential solutions are discussed in this paper. Requirements for further research are also presented.
