Self-Healing Reconfiguration for Restoration of Naval Shipboard Power Systems Academic Article uri icon


  • Naval shipboard power systems form a critical component of the U.S. defense infrastructure. When there is a fault in a shipboard power system either due to battle damage or material casualty, it is important to quickly isolate the fault and restore supply to as many loads as possible. This paper presents an automated self-healing strategy for reconfiguration for service restoration in naval shipboard power systems. The proposed method is illustrated on a system developed based on a typical surface combatant ship.
