The Analysis of Effectiveness Electric Motor As A Main Propulsion In The Navy Ships

Abdul Rahman, Antariksa Antariksa, Bambang Semedi, Slamet Wahyudi


Electric motors as the main booster for ships are widely used in submarines. But now, it was used in the Navy Ships type of Xyz Class. In the world, there are quite a several warships that use electric motors as the main propulsion engines because they have high efficiency, especially in terms of maintenance budget requirements and fuel budgets. On the other side, During the operation at the Navy Ships, several advantages were felt both in terms of operation and maintenance. The electric motor was very useful to be used in Navy Ships type of Xyz because it was very efficient in fuel consumption when it was used as the main engine. Now, the Indonesian Navy has had two Navy Ships type of Xyz. And Indonesian Navy hoped that this kind of engine type can be useful and give more beneficial in the future, especially in helping its jobs.
