    Abstract

    Abstract The increasing number of components in a system makes the integration of complex system a challenging task. Having multiple requirements, limitations and schedules to bring a product to market and to achieve the best possible system design and configuration from multiple design perspectives, increase the difficulty of its conception even further. Therefore, we propose a new methodology that systematically helps analyze and integrate complex power systems. The methodology synthesizes the design steps on every perspective of design by using so called interrelation planes: mechanical, electrical, thermal, volumetric, etc. The proposed methodology helps analyze multiple variations of system configurations in a swift and easy way with common available tools. An example of its application is provided by means of the integration of a variable speed power generator for maritime applications.
