A systems design methodology for the marine power plant, within the over-
all ship system design, is expounded in the present paper.
problem is delineated through considerations of constrained problem
definition, and the important factors entering the design of the marine power
plant are presented, with due account given to the complexity of their
Finally, potential trends of present-day, alternative prime
movers are considered in the context of specific applications and/or
considerations of immediate or near future relevance.
In recent years marine propulsion has come to be dominated by the diesel
engine, primarily the one of the slow speed type.
Exceptions can only be
found in rather special applications, such as liquefied natural gas carriers, the
