Recently, environmental regulations have been strengthened for SOX, NOX, and CO2, which are ship exhaust gases. In addition, according to the 4th Industrial Revolution, research on autonomous ship technology has become active and interest in electric propulsion systems is increasing. This paper analyzes the power load characteristics of an electric propulsion ship, which is the basic technology for an autonomous ship, in terms of energy management. For the load analysis, data were collected for a 6,800 TEU container ship with a mechanical propulsion system, and the propulsion load was converted to an electric power load and clustered according to the characteristics using a SOM (Self-Organizing Map). As a result of the load analysis, it was confirmed that the load characteristics of the ship could be explained by the operation mode of the ship.
