The ESTS 2019 will focus on emerging electric ship technologies in the following major technical areas:

  • Electric Power System Architectures, including Breaker-less and Superconducting DC Systems
  • Electric Ship Design Tools, Methods, and Guidelines (Analysis, Synthesis, Modeling and Simulation)
  • Electric Propulsion and Generation (Machines, Variable Speed Drives, Propulsors)
  • Electrical Power Conversion for DC Distribution, including Active Current Limitation
  • Energy Storage and Pulsating Loads: Integration, Control, and Impact on System Performance
  • Power Distribution, Cabling, and Grounding
  • Protection, Reconfiguration, and Survivability
  • Power System Control Methods and Architectures

The ESTS 2019 conference seeks proposals for two-hour tutorials that provide instructional materials on relevant topics within the scope of the above major technical areas. There is no cost to attend the tutorial sessions and attendance is open to the public. Accepted tutorials will appear on IEEE Xplore.


Proposals should concisely describe the relevance of the tutorial to electric ship technologies and contain the following sections:

  • Title
  • Outline
  • Speaker(s) and the topics they will cover
  • Brief CVs (less than 300 words per speaker)

The instructor(s) should indicate any presentation requirements (e.g. multimedia) and any plans to provide case studies, practical examples, or hands-on activities. Submitted tutorial proposals should not exceed four pages and should be sent to the Tutorials Chair in a single PDF file at The deadline for submissions is February 28, 2019. If you have any questions, please contact the Tutorials Chair.
