The ESTS 2021 invites commercial and military ship end-users, shipbuilders, port operators, classification societies, machinery and equipment manufacturers, research institutes, universities and other organizations around the world to present their views, opinions, experiences with their studies, research, designs and future advances on these subjects. Panel sessions and poster presentations will be held for these topics.

ESTS 2021 Technical Areas

The ESTS 2021 will focus on emerging electric ship technologies in the following major technical areas:

  • Model-based systems engineering: ship and system-level models, methods and guidelines, including digital twin development
  • Model-based systems engineering: subsystem-level, converter, & component models, methods and guidelines
  • Electric propulsion and generation (machines, variable speed drives, propulsors)
  • Electrical power conversion for DC distribution, including active current limitation
  • Energy storage and pulsating loads: integration, control, and impact on system performance
  • Power distribution, cabling, superconducting DC systems, and dielectric challenges at medium voltage
  • Electromagnetic interference, electromagnetic compatibility, grounding, and common-mode behavior
  • Protection, reconfiguration, and survivability
  • Power system control methods and architectures
  • Cyber-physical system considerations for shipboard platforms

Virtual Conference due to COVID-19

IEEE and the Organizing Committee of ESTS 2021 have been monitoring the uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. Although we were eager for a return to a sense of normality and the opportunity to meet at in-person events again, continuing concerns and unpredictability over health, travel and gathering restrictions make it impossible to plan and deliver a high-quality traditional conference. After much thought, deliberation and discussion, the Organizing Committee members have reached a consensus that moving ESTS 2021 to be fully virtual is the best option.
