Optimal power management of shipboard power system for failure mode (OPMSF) is a significant and challenging problem considering the safety of system and person. Many existing works focused on the transient-time recovery without consideration of the operating cost and the voyage plan... In this paper, the OPMSF problem is formulated considering the mid-time scheduling and the faults at bus and generator. Two- side adjustment methods including the load shedding and the reconfiguration are coordinated for reducing the fault effects. To address the formulated non-convex problem, the travel equality constraint and fractional energy efficiency operation indicator (EEOI) limitation are transformed into the convex forms. Then, considering the infeasibility scenario affected by faults, a further relaxation is adopted to formulate a new problem with feasibility guaranteed. Furthermore, a sufficient condition is derived to ensure that the new problem has the same optimal solution as the original one. Because of the mixed-integer nonlinear feature, an optimal algorithm based on Benders decomposition (BD) is developed to solve the new one. Due to the slow convergence caused by the time-coupled constraints, a low-complexity near-optimal algorithm based on BD (LNBD) is proposed. The results verify the effectivity of the proposed methods and algorithms. read more
