The United States Navy is at a crossroads in the design of ship's engineering plants. Advances in solid-state power electronics combined with a shift to gas turbine powered propulsion and electric plants has placed renewed emphasis on developing advanced power systems. These advanced power systems may combine the prime movers associated with propulsion and electric power generation into an integrated system. The development of advanced electric distribution systems and propulsion derived ships service (PDSS) power systems are interim steps toward the goal of an integrated system. Advarnces in the design of ships power systems, whether revolutionary or evolutionary, will require extensive testing and simulation. This thesis will develop a basis with which to judge various simulation tools, it will then evaluate a simulation program developed for the Navy by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
