Power distribution networks for marine applications have experienced significant changes in recent years with the evolution of DC technologies. Some low-voltage DC solutions have already been employed for low power ships with their main benefits and there are a lot of research activities to adopt these technologies to high power ships. This paper presents current technologies on marine DC power distribution networks in terms of system architectures, power equipment and system protection. In addition, several developments for marine applications which may be needed in future are discussed.
