Designing electrified vessels: Making the right choices from the very beginning

Learn how to harness the power of integrated computer-aided engineering (CAE) to design efficient electrified vessels that meet performance targets

Estimated Watching Time: 50 minutes


Leverage integrated computer-aided engineering design processes.

The marine industry is facing pressure to become more sustainable. To meet these demands, the market is seeking cheaper fuel alternatives and electrified propulsion systems. However, electrification of vessels has proven to be more complicated than simply installing a battery pack in an existing hull. Achieving optimal performance of electrified vessels requires an integrated design approach that looks at the vessel’s hydrodynamic performance, weight and drivetrain efficiency.

Simcenter’s suite of CAE tools can support naval architects’ understanding of the electrification process and how all systems work concurrently. This webinar will showcase how these tools can be used to build efficient electrified vessels.

De-risking and accelerating the development of electrified vessels

In maritime applications, battery weight is a critical consideration that affects both the range and cost of the vessel. To account for these weight, range and cost challenges while achieving optimal performance of electrified vessels, engineers must design the watercraft and electrified drivetrain concurrently. Traditional approaches such as physical testing, towing tank experiments and even single disciplinary simulations are only the beginning. What is key to creating optimized designs that meet a vessel’s required mission profile? An integrated design approach.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Apply the integrated ship design process step by step, from concept to full vessel design
  • Approach hydrodynamic simulations with automated workflows to easily understand performance metrics
  • Combine computational fluid dynamics modeling with model-based systems engineering using system simulation to assess propulsive efficiency
  • Make informed choices for battery pack design and placement
