Because of recent interests in energy conservation and prevention of environmental pollution, research related to these topics is increasing. The U.S. Navy has started to study the HED (hybrid electric drive) system in order to improve the COGAG propulsion system's fuel efficiency in AEGIS destroyers. (This ship's fuel consumption is 40% of the total fuel consumption of the U.S. Navy.) In addition, the Korean Navy is considering applications of the HED system in AEGIS destroyers. The purpose of this study is to analyze the U.S.A.'s HED system and to simulate its generating mode energy saving rate using LabVIEW. The results confirmed that the fuel savings are about 700 kg/h.
