The surface combatant of the 21st century will be designed to support a myriad of tasks requiring greater flexibility and endurance while keeping construction, maintenance and operating costs to a minimum. As a result the design of a surface combatant will depart from today's standards and philosophies. One option is the use of an electric propulsion system that can be integrated with the other ship's electrical loads. Electric propulsion operating with an Integrated Electrical System has many advantages that will fulfill the requirements of future surface combatants. This study provides the historical background, the supporting issues, components, and architecture of electric propulsion systems and the Integrated Electrical System. Technical information on various component types and issues that influence the design considerations of an electric propulsion system and Integrated Electrical System to meet the requirements of a surface combatant are addressed. The areas of study are prime movers, generators, frequency converters, motors, ship's service electrical distribution, auxiliary electrical loads, and system control. The designer and operator of the surface combatant of the 2l% Century can better understand the application of an electric propulsion system and an Integrated Electrical System from the accrued information on components, system architecture and system control herein
