The article considers one of the ways to increase the energy efficiency of marine autonomous power plants by using asynchronous generators with capacitor excitation instead of traditional generator sets with synchronous generators. A comparative analysis of transients of synchronous and asynchronous electrical installations for typical operating conditions, which showed the advantages of asynchronous generator sets (structural, energy, economic) and due to which they can be the main sources of electricity on board in the future. The graphs of the corresponding transients are given. References 10, figures 6.
Key words: electric power generation, synchronous and asynchronous generators, comparative energy efficiency analysis.
