Abstract or Summary

This paper proposes fuzzy control strategies for a hybrid powered passenger boat. The proposed design incorporates a propulsion controller that aims to reduce fuel consumption by switching between electric motors and diesel engines depending on the boat's real‑time situation. A hybrid on-board auxiliary power controller is also proposed that employs a combination of solar, wind, marine deep cycle batteries and diesel. MATLAB software is used to simulate and evaluate the proposed controllers. A prototype field-programmable gate array implementation is also constructed for validation purposes.
