Description: Merchant ships are sources of emissions of tons of CO2, SOX, NOX and other pollutants. The main purpose of the thesis is to investigate ways to reduce these emissions by using wind power, thereby reducing fossil fuels consumption.
The thesis is innovative as it approaches this purpose from three different perspectives:
1. It is a compilation of the existing wind power technologies for the propulsion of merchant ships, such as Flettner rotors or wingsails, among others. A study of each technology has been carried out, regarding their physical principles, their operation, their adaptation and installation aboard vessels and the energy benefits they bring. The thesis may be considered, in part, as an encyclopedia of modern and innovative wind power technologies for naval propulsion.
2. The mathematical equations presented and the concepts explained are applied in a more practical way, putting the main technologies through their paces in an analysis of a real case.
3. A new system for the propulsion of merchant vessels is proposed, conceived from the study of the existing technologies and from own ideas.
Information on the state of the art of each technology has also been compiled and analysed, in order to evaluate the viability of each system and its current level of development.
