In this paper, a multi-energy ship microgrid system is taken as an object, and a dual-mode switching technology is proposed to solve the problem of reliable switching under different power supply modes. First, the requirements and principles of smooth switching of marine microgrid are clarified; Secondly, the control strategies of different operation modes are designed, and the performance of voltage and current loop is improved; Finally, the simulation model is established, and the simulation results of different operation modes are verified. The simulation results show that the designed switching technology can meet the dynamic performance of the ship microgrid.
