Types and configuration of electrochemical cells for selected electric energy storage facilities on the ship were presented. The method and results of reliability analyses, such as failure mode effect analysis (FMEA), reliability block diagram (RBD) and fault tree analysis (FTA), used to estimate the probability of failure of the energy storage systems supplying the ship's main propulsion, are presented. Methods of evaluation and verification of the proposed reliability model using a laboratory model and available operational and service data are discussed. A proposal for a quantitative risk analysis of potential damage during the operation of the energy storage has been presented.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.17.01.08}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Probability of Failure Occurrence, Reliability Assessment, New Generation Marine Propulsion Systems, Electric Ship, Electric Propulsion System, Hybrid Electric-Propulsion System, Reliability Block Diagram (RBD), Energy Storage Systems (BESS)} }
