The modern stage of shipping is characterised by a reduction of the crew which entails increasing requirements for the reliability of shipboard technical equipment, systems, and mechanisms. The purpose of the work is to develop the emergency prevention control system for the shipboard electric power plant which will increase reliability and help to maintain fault-free operation. To achieve this purpose, the structure of the emergency prevention control system was presented, and the efficiency analysis of the proposed system in comparison with the traditional shipboard electric power plant control system was carried out. The results have shown that the use of an emergency prevention control system will increase the probability of a shipboard electrical power plant being in the normal mode of operation when all parameters are within acceptable limits while reducing the probability of being in a fault mode from 12.5% to 5.56% which proves the expediency of its application. It was found that such a system would reduce the negative impact on the environment, climate change and global warming. At the same time, further research is needed, since the use of renewable energy sources can cover the needs of only a part of ship power systems.
