To meet possible future emission regulations for inland ships alternative propulsion systems with fuel cell technology and batteries are researched. A rather simple, yet efficient dynamic model is being developed to simulate four different propulsion system configurations with different fuel cells and different fuels. The system configurations and sub models are discussed in this paper, as well as the design considerations and lay-out of the energy control system and results of the first simulations.
