This paper deals with controlling DC power in shipboard power. The Shipboard power system (SPS) experiences disturbance due to variations in load. A DC bus distribution system developed for the USA. Coast Guard’s 270-ft Intermediate Endurance Harvester is simulated using MATLAB in this paper. Whenever a fault occurs in load, the system power varies. In this article, the DC power system is controlled automatically by detecting disturbances. The proposed method includes self-governing fault detection and controlling DC power. The shipboard power system consists of a challenge related to restoration. The reliability and flexibility of the system are improved with effective integrated energy storage devices (ESD) and solar power. A maiden attempt is made in the paper with a solar panel for the cost-effective operation of the SPS. Also, the SPS with and without the PV panel is tested for optimal operation. Furthermore, this shipboard management system may be implemented in the Indian shipboard system for optimal power management.
