Application of energy storage (ES) in power distribution systems (PDS) of short sea shipping marine vessels is gaining ground. The main drivers are the increasing demand for higher energy efficiency and the decreasing costs of battery ES systems (BESS). The feasible chemistry and dimensioning of the BESS depend heavily on the vessel type, the PDS topology, and the load profile. Thus, no general rules for battery dimensioning that would fit all vessels can be presented, but the analysis must be performed by using an advanced modeling approach, which takes into account the abovementioned factors. This paper presents a modeling methodology for dimensioning marine vessel ES and hybrid PDS components. The methodology has been tested for two distinct vessels, a cruiseferry and an off-shore support vessel.
