AES 2007 – The Vision Redrawn


Royal College of Physicians Conference Centre, London, UK

Organised by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) and supported by Société de l’Electricité, de l’Electronique, et des Technologies de l’Information et de la Communication (SEE), AES 2007 will be held at the Royal College of Physicians Conference Centre, London on 25-26 September 2007. This is the sixth event in the series, which alternates between the UK and France.

“The ten years since the first event in the series was staged in 1997 have seen many significant steps in the evolution of the All-Electric Ship,” says Keith Read CBE, Chief Executive of IMarEST. “Electric ships encompass electric propulsion and integrated power generators together with advanced electrical techniques for achieving efficient ship operations. Many surface ships are now using AES technologies including: warships, naval auxiliaries, cruise lingers, LNG carriers, shuttle tankers, FPSOs, offshore platforms and support vessels.

“This year’s conference theme highlights the fact that there is much that can be shared here in London in 2007 and much yet to be achieved. We are looking forward to a highly stimulating event attended by commercial and military ship operators, designers and shipbuilders, classification societies, machinery and equipment manufacturers, universities and other organisations; and that will move ambition, knowledge and technical ability along in concert towards a common goal.”

The closing date for receipt of 250-500 word synopses is 30 March. AES 2007 conference themes include:

  • Operation and support - Operational experience; personnel and training; certification and standards; data acquisition and monitoring; and testing and evaluation
  • Efficiency, emissions and environmental compliance - High efficiency lighting; heat management (ventilation & air conditioning); fuel economy; and prime mover emissions
  • System analysis - Modelling; simulation; software integration; validation; model integration; and mode-based design
  • Platform management, control and automation - Power management; control system integration; and automation
  • Integrated and auxiliary electric propulsion systems - Electrical generation and prime movers; electric propulsion (systems & equipment); busbars; pods; electrical distribution, conversion and storage; and power quality and protection
  • New technologies - Torque dense machines; fault current limiters; novel converter topologies; electrification of auxiliaries; DC distribution; and fuel cells
A supporting exhibition will be held in conjunction with the conference enabling companies to exhibit their latest products and services.
