Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The global maritime transport industry operates according to a set of specific laws. The development of digital systems in the marine industry has resulted in the appearance of significant indicators. Today, the ship’s crew is decreasing, the ship’s productivity is increasing, and environmental indicators are being monitored. The development of the industry requires research in various fields of engineering, such as robotics, automation, neural networks, and ecology, amongst others. This research will significantly contribute to the development of the industry as a whole.

This Special Issue provides a platform for academics, scientists, and industry professionals to exchange the most contemporary ideas, techniques, methods, and experiences in the area of ship energy systems, including modelling, optimisation, control, maintenance, safety, autonomy, environmental friendliness, regulatory framework, and sustainability.

In the article, the mechanical and electromechanical starting characteristics of an asynchronous electric drive of a two-piston ship compressor are investigated by a numerical method. A distinctive feature of the operation of the electric drive of a reciprocating compressor is that its load torque changes with a certain frequency. The dependence of the load torque on the shaft of the electric drive of the piston compressor on the angle of rotation is presented in the form of a Fourier series. Moments of inertia are reduced to a single system that performs a rotary motion. Mechanical and electromechanical starting characteristics are constructed. The estimation of the degree of torque pulsations on the shaft is made. It is determined that the compressor has a large amplitude of torque ripple on the shaft, which, in turn, affects the magnitude of the current ripple in the electric drive. Full article

The reasonable decision of ship detention plays a vital role in flag state control (FSC). Machine learning algorithms can be applied as aid tools for identifying ship detention. In this study, we propose a novel interpretable ship detention decision-making model based on machine learning, termed SMOTE-XGBoost-Ship detention model (SMO-XGB-SD), using the extreme gradient boosting (XGBoost) algorithm and the synthetic minority oversampling technique (SMOTE) algorithm to identify whether a ship should be detained. Our verification results show that the SMO-XGB-SD algorithm outperforms random forest (RF), support vector machine (SVM), and logistic regression (LR) algorithm. In addition, the new algorithm also provides a reasonable interpretation of model performance and highlights the most important features for identifying ship detention using the Shapley additive explanations (SHAP) algorithm. The SMO-XGB-SD model provides an effective basis for aiding decisions on ship detention by inland flag state control officers (FSCOs) and the ship safety management of ship operating companies, as well as training services for new FSCOs in maritime organizations.

If a ship’s hull or tank breaks, the ship may sink, or oil spills can cause enormous damage to the environment. If the ship is equipped with a capable, cost-effective oil or liquid flow stop emergency device, casualties and marine pollution could be reduced. Many magnetic-type liquid spill stop emergency devices developed since 1904 have limitations, such as difficulties with installation and impossibility of use during sailing. This study demonstrated the applicability of a magnetic-type liquid spill stop emergency device through tests for water pressure and leakage, attachment, magnetic fields, and the generation of sparks. Results showed that the device can be applied to the ship’s side hull and bottom with a specified minimum diameter at a pressure depth of 1.0 kg/cm2 while sailing at a speed of 18 kts (9.26 m/s). If the distance from the device was at least approximately 750 mm, the magnetic field had no effect, and there was no risk of explosion due to sparks. A cost–benefit analysis based on the International Maritime Organization-approved guidelines for formal safety assessment confirmed the cost effectiveness of the device. This experimental study confirmed that the magnetic liquid stop emergency device is generally applicable to a ship’s hull. Full article
