Ships and other marine vessels experience power quality problems such as reactive power, imbalances, and harmonics, which can cause power failures and damage sensitive equipment. Marine equipment also relies on the use of variable-frequency drives (VFD), which are commonly used to conserve energy. Our power quality tools help ensure that electrical systems onboard ships are up and running 24/7, preventing blackouts and ensuring safety and reliability.
Schilling Robotics makes the world’s most advanced deep-sea Remote Operated Vehicles. The ROV’s are electrically powered from a surface ship, but there are many slip rings between the ship and the ROV. Schilling is experimenting with evaluating the shipboard power and the ROV power simultaneously using PSL’s PQube.
PSL offers practical, hands-on seminars for marine engineers. We can teach a half-day seminar at your site anywhere in the world, or you can come to one of our scheduled seminars.
