A new conceptual approach to the design of marine electrical distribution systems is suggested as an alternative to existing methods. Ferries, escort tugs, and harbor vessels having electrical distribution systems with direct current links and battery banks have problems associated with necessity of fast battery recharging during short stops. The use of a modular approach to a battery design is a possible solution to these problems. The alternative distribution systems are examined to clarify the point.
