Abstract: The capability to dynamically reconfigure future naval integrated electric power systems is central to the Navy’s vision of the future combat ship. The objective in this thesis is to design, implement and evaluate a Shipboard Power System Management system that will prevent loss of power at critical buses when damage conditions are encountered. The approach that we are proposing is based on a new paradigm for the design of optimal control systems for hybrid systems, i.e., systems composed of continuous dynamics and discrete events. Discrete events may involve external disturbances, the discrete action of protection devices or control systems. The essence of the idea is that the discrete acting subsystems are naturally associated with a set of logical conditions or logical and the continuous system dynamics are usually described by differential equations or differential-algebraic equations. We will introduce a dynamic programming method forhybrid systems that solves dynamic optimization problems involving both binary and real variables. The stability analysis of the hybrid control systems is conducted via bifurcation control analysis. The state feedback controller strategy for the mode switching of the power system is obtained through Mixed Integer Dynamic Programming. It is computed in the form of a lookup table that represents a mapping from combinations of modes, and continuous states to the required switching actions. Simulations results will be analyzed.
