Sensitivity Analysis of the Shipboard Integrated Power System
Stochastic sensitivity analysis is a valuable tool in ranking inputs and in investigating the degree of interaction of its components. In this paper, we present stochastic simulation results for a shipboard integrated power system and study its sensitivity. Specifically, we apply sensitivity analysis to two high‐fidelity models of shipboard subsystems, investigating open‐ and closed‐loop control of the propulsion system. The results show that different inputs are most important for the open‐ and closed‐loop control, with sensitivities that change dramatically in time as they reflect the transition from the fast electrical scales to slower mechanical scales. We also demonstrate how sensitivity analysis can be used to establish the robustness of the AC drive.
