I am currently playing a premium ship and I keep seeing this reminder in the equipment page: premium XP can be converted to free XP. What exactly does this mean and what premium XP are they talking about? Ship XP?

When you have a ship fully upgrade, and you search the next ship in line, whatever XP left  and it turn into elite status, and if you keep playing her, it accumulate the XP on that ship. Same go with Prem ship. They all treated as PremiumXP and can so call shipXP as well

 

But if you have a ship, not fully upgrade and did not go research for next tier in line, it still call shipXP.

Premium or elite ships (ie, with all their modules researched) can have any additional ship XP that’s generated by playing more converted to free XP (which can be used on other ships to research modules, or even skip ships, or used on captains) for doubloons.

Occasionally, there is a sale where the conversion rate of 1 doubloon for 25 XP increases to 35 XP - try to wait for those if you can given it’s really expensive to convert XP.

Cut and paste from the wiki:

Experience

Experience is another primary currency in World of Warships. Players earn experience in the same way as they do Credits through battles and special missions. Experience is measured by Experience Points (XP). There are several types of experience.

Ship Experience (XP)

Icon_reward_exp.png

Ship experience (usually just 'XP' Ship XP) is the main type of experience. It is used to research (unlock) new ship modules and the next tier ship(s) in the tech tree, allowing the player to progress. Research consumes any available XP before turning to other sources, such as Free experience, for a missing amount. Once researched, a module or ship can be bought for Credits, and if later sold, need not be researched again.

Ship experience cannot be earned through containers, campaigns, or shop bundles. Additional ship experience is occasionally awarded by a mission to the ship completing that mission.

On the post-battle 'Personal Score' tab, (modified) ship XP is displayed next to the silver star Ship XP, and on the 'Credits and XP' tab as Total: in the appropriate column.

Elite XP

Upon researching all of a ship's modules and unlocking all succeeding tier ships, the ship gains Elite status. Any excess XP, and all future XP earned on that ship, is called Elite XP. While this type of XP can no longer be used to research new modules or ships, it can be converted to Free Experience Free XP for a Doubloons fee (a feature available upon reaching Account Level 6).

As premium ships do not have any modules or succeeding ships to research, they automatically have Elite status and so earn Elite XP. Players can use these ships to collect Free XP indirectly (by playing the ship to obtain the Elite XP, then buying Doubloons, and finally converting the Elite XP to Free XP using the Doubloons).

Elite XP is earned and displayed in-game exactly as regular ship XP. In addition, clicking the 'Convert XP' button below the Free XP Free XP quantity in the upper right corner of the Port screen displays the Elite XP balance on all Elite ships, and the total available for conversion.

Base XP

Base XP (sometimes BXP) is the experience earned directly from a ship's performance in battle. See the Base Earnings article for factors that determine base experience.

Base XP is modified by various bonuses such as daily first win, camouflage, signals, a premium account, etc. to yield the modified ship XP Modified Ship Experience used to research modules and ships, and Elite XP. It is also the basis of earned Free experience Free XP and Commander experience. See the Economics article for how these derived values are calculated.

Base XP appears on the post-battle report 'Team Score' tab and is used to rank team performance. It also appears on the 'Credits and XP' tab in the left-hand (non-premium) column as XP/Received/Earned where its use in calculating derived XP values is broken out.

 

Missions may require the accumulation of Base XP as the mission objective.

 

Free Experience

Icon_reward_freexp.png

A player who reaches Account Level 6 unlocks Free Experience (often Free XP or FXP Free XP). The Free Experience pool, like Credits, is shared among all ships and therefore can be spent in place of ship experience Ship XP to unlock any ship or module. A few premium ships can be purchased directly for Free XP plus one credit.[5] Free XP can also be used to train captains if the player has used up all of his Elite Commander Experience Elite Commander XP (see below). The current balance of the Free XP pool is displayed on the main Port page, in the upper right-hand corner next to the gold star Free XP.

Free XP is earned in battle at the base rate of 5% of the total (modified) ship experience Ship XP. Bonuses for Free XP earning are available. See the Economics article for how FXP earnings are calculated.

Free XP also can be obtained by converting Elite XP (ship or commander) at the rate of 1 Doubloon per 25 Free XP converted.[3]

The amount of Free XP earned in a battle is displayed next to the gold star Free XP on the post-battle 'Personal Score' tab and in the appropriate column of the 'Credits and XP' tab. By hovering the mouse over the Total value on the latter page, the components of the value can be seen.

 

Note that Free XP does not count towards mission objectives or daily containers, unless specifically stated otherwise.
