Nowadays, electric warships are involved in complex missions involving multiple simultaneous operations. In order to ensure mission success, future ships must be designed in a way that optimizes their performance in presence of complex mission loads. The metric operability has played a major role in assessing mission performance. This paper discusses the evolution of this metric from fixed load-based early-stage shipboard electrical system design to the current approaches of using dynamic mission profiles. Results for a notional two-function problem involving multiple missions are shown to demonstrate the current state of operability-based approaches for the evaluation of power system performance.
