Crisley de Souza PeixotoCrisley graduated in science and technology and mechanical engineering at the Federal University of Jequitinhonha and Mucuri Valleys. He is currently pursuing a master’s degree in mechanical engineering at the University of São Paulo, studying hybrid power systems for vessels in a project for the Research Center for Gas Innovation. During his internship at the Institute for Technological Research of the State of São Paulo, he assisted in the execution of experiments in biomass gasification and CFD simulations. His research interests include modeling, simulation and control of dynamical systems, transport phenomena, hybrid power systems, ship propulsion and thermal engineering.
Modeling, simulation and control of hybrid power systems for vessels
This presentation will describe research results from hybrid power system simulation for vessels. It will discuss the challenges and the adopted methodology to develop a dynamical simulator to predict the performance of powertrains, and will propose control strategies to improve the hybrid solutions. The simulator can be integrated with maritime mission simulators that provide vessel physics information and allow simulation under different environmental conditions. Models of system components such as gensets, lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells and electric motors, as well as primary control and an optimal energy management strategy, will be described. Finally, a case study will be discussed.
