Industrial/PhD Course: Maritime Microgrids (ONLINE)


15.02.2021 kl. 08.30 - 16.02.2021 kl. 15.00



Professor Josep M. Guerrero, Aalborg University, Denmark
Professor Juan C. Vasquez, Aalborg University, Denmark


Professor Josep M. Guerrero, Aalborg University, Denmark
Professor Tomasz Tarasiuk - Gdynia Maritime University, Poland
Professor Giorgio Sulligoi - Triste University, Italy
Assistant Professor Daniele Bosich - Triste University, Italy



Nowadays, an important kind of islanded microgrids can be found in maritime power systems. For example, under normal operating conditions, the ship power system can be considered as a typical isolated microgrid and its characteristics, including variable frequency, are matched to terrestrial islanded microgrids.
This course provides an overview of the present and future architectures of such microgrids, associated control technologies, optimization methods, power quality issues and state of the art solutions. The significant role of power electronics in realizing maritime microgrids, challenges in meeting high power requirements and regulations in the maritime industry, state-of-the-art power electronic technologies and future trend towards the use of medium voltage power converters in maritime microgrids are also presented in this course.

  • Day 1: Introduction on Electric Ships and Signal Processing of Power Quality Disturbances - Josep M. Guerrero (1h) + Tomasz Tarasiuk (5h)

  • Day 2: DC ship power systems: Evolution and Research Challenges - Josep M. Guerrero (1h) + Giorgio Sulligoi (3h) + Daniele Bosich (1h)


The course exercises will be done via MathCad and Matlab/Simulink simpowersytems.

Form of evaluation:

The participants will be grouped and asked to team work on several case study scenarios and tasks proposed along the course. The assessment in this course will be done through a final multi-choice test in combination with delivery of exercises reports. 


6000 DKK for PhD students outside of Denmark and 8000 DKK for the Industry.
