Hi, I am currently designing the powering/propulsion system of a superyacht as a project at university and I have run into numerous problems. 1) The yacht will have 3 CAT gensets providing up to 5,500kw and a minimum of 1300kw. If the yacht requires only 850 kW when at anchor for hotel loads and stabilizers it would not be efficient to run 1 genset at 1300kW as power would be wasted. Would the best solution be to have a separate aux. generator? 2)solar panels are also to be used as a renewable source of energy, can their power simply be added to the switchboard? 3)Does anyone know of any simple calculations for hotel loads and fresh water stores per person/time at sea for superyachts? thanks!
