Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

Abstract

The Integrated Full Electric Propulsion (IFEP) concept is of increasing interest to the commercial and naval industries due to the advantages of flexibility, capability and efficiency it is believed to offer. IFEP systems exhibit tight coupling of electrical and mechanical sub-systems and disturbances are able to propagate easily between them. This leads to a particular requirement for an integrated simulation of the complete electro-mechanical system to ensure that its behaviour is clearly understood. This paper discusses some of the particular challenges of such an approach and presents the methods adopted by the authors in integrating a number of high-fidelity electrical and mechanical models to represent a complete vessel propulsion system. A case study is used to demonstrate the capabilities of the resulting integrated model in simulating the interaction of the electrical and mechanical components to a disturbance to the propulsion drive
