We present a detailed model of the integrated power system coupled to hydrodynamics that allows us to study global sensitivities in the All-Electric Ship. A novel element of our formulation is the stochastic modeling of the coupled system to account for uncertainty in the parameters or operating conditions. This new computational framework is applied to a model of the DDG- 51 destroyer that involves a 19 MW 15-phase induction machine and an indirect field oriented controller. In particular, we simulate extreme events corresponding to propeller emergence and firing of pulsed power weapons.
