This paper presents a new approach for the design of integrated protection of next generation shipboard power systems. The focus is given to testing of new protection schemes through a design process that can provide opportunities to investigate the concept of integrated protection, as well as integrated control and reconfiguration, in shipboard power systems. This work emphasizes modeling, simulation, rapid prototyping and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing as the key stages in the proposed design process. These stages are accomplished in the given application example through the use of real-time simulation platforms in combination with rapid prototyping hardware. Furthermore, to demonstrate the proposed design process, the simplest protection scheme with an instantaneous overcurrent relay is considered, and future developments based on this application are described.
