Full Parallel Hybrid - 10 Functional Modes

Functional mode hybrid types boat

Functional Modes of Hybrid Yacht Propulsion

1. Full Diesel Traditional Propulsion

  • In this mode, the yacht can be operated traditionally, even if the hybrid system is off: both in hardware and software

2. Diesel Electric Navigation Mode

  • Main diesel engines are off

  • Variable speed generators produce electrical power to operate the electric motors

  • Top comfort medium/long range navigation

3. Zero Emission Navigation Mode

  • All the internal combustion engines are off

  • Only the high voltage batteries supply power to the electric motors and to the Hotel Load

  • Zero noise cruising

  • Zero pollution

4. Economy Navigation Mode

  • Only one main diesel engine is on

  • The engine supplies power to the system through the alternator mode of the electric engine

  • Both shafts are operative as one is powered by the main diesel engine and the second one by the electrical motor

  • In this mode, the electrical power for propulsion, Hotel Load, and the battery charge is generated by the shaft alternator

  • Both the generators can be switched off

  • Measured overall fuel savings up to 30%

  • Engine running hours drastically reduced

5. Power Boost Mode

  • The electrical motors and the diesel engines are working together on the same shaft

  • Increased acceleration up to 25% or more (depends on the hull trim)

  • Top speed Increased up to 3.5 knots

  • In this operation mode, both main diesel engines and all gensets diesel engines are working at 100% load

6. Cruising Boost Mode

  • The electrical motors and the diesel engines are working together on the same line shaft

  • In this operation mode, both main diesel engines and all gensets diesel engines are working at 80% load (continuous rating)

  • Increased cruising speed to the top speed of a traditionally operated yacht

7. Hotel Load Zero Emissions Mode

  • Lithium-ion batteries supply energy for all of the electrical systems of the yacht

  • At anchor, the yacht is fully operative up to 12 hours with all the diesel engines off

  • Top comfort

  • Zero noise

  • Zero pollution

8.

International Shore Power and Plug-in Battery Charge Mode

  • While at the dock, the hybrid yacht has worldwide electrical shore power compatibility and charges the Lithium-ion batteries

  • No need for extra shore power converter

  • Save fuel for the next day at anchor

9. Generator Fast Charge Mode

  • Main diesel engines are off 

  • Variable speed generators operate at high speed to provide the power for a fast charge of the batteries and hotel load

  • Batteries will reach 90% charge in as little as 30 minutes

10. Navigation Fast Charge Mode

  • Main diesel engines are on

  • Variable speed generators are off

  • The electric motors attached to the main diesel engines generate the power for the hotel load and charge the batteries to 90% in as little as 30 minutes

Hybrid propulsion power grants the highest standards in terms of noise and vibration reduction. Cruising on Bintador is really pleasant; sometimes it’s hard to notice you are actually moving. The owner’s preference is the electric mode when he is on board.
