Recent progress in understanding the robustness properties of large-scale networks leads one to consider how such results can inform design of the all-electric ship. Network robustness seems to be correlated with certain statistical properties, which may give rise to a natural design procedure wherein the statistics of the network become the main design goals. This would represent a departure from the current design paradigm. We have performed systematic cascading failure simulations based on a notional cruiser topology, in comparison with equalcost random and scale-free networks. Although preliminary, our results show that some advantage can be obtained through the alternative designs.
