An Optimal Scheduling Tool For The Realization of On-Shore Power Supply At Seaports With Limited Power Supply From The Distribution Grid
Onshore power supply is gaining significant ground as technology due to the environmental benefits that it can provide. Although OPS design has been studied taking into consideration several factors, including local renewable energy production and operation as a microgrid, there are not many studies that investigate the scenario in which there is not adequate power capacity to interconnect all the ships berthing in the port. In this study, a simple software tool is developed in order to schedule the onshore power supply system operation by the means of optimally selecting the ships which should connect to the onshore power supply, aiming to maximize its environmental benefits, depending on the constrains each port is subject to.
