Abstract: This papers deals with well – based mathematical modeling of variable speed alternator (Shaft Generator) with PWM voltage source inverter used in ship. Detailed knowledge of electromagnetic characteristics of shaft generator is necessary for design complex ship’s power system. Such knowledge is obtainable only by numerical simulations. The dynamic behavior of shaft generators, SPWM voltage source inverter and their controllers during load variations are also discussed with the help of MATLAB/SIMULINK. Elimination of harmonic contents using sinusoidal pulse width modulation also discussed here.
Keywords: PWM – Pulse width modulation, Shaft Generator, VSI – Voltage Source Inverter.
