New Conceptual Approach to Large Marine Electrical Distribution Systems
Abstract:A new conceptual approach to the design of large marine electrical distribution systems is suggested as an alternative to existing methods. Distribution systems with increasing higher power, and featuring numerous converters and machines, create problems associated with harmonics, reliability, redundancy, and survivability. The use of direct current is a possible solution to these distribution problems. As an alternative to using direct current for local distribution, this paper suggests using direct current for main distribution including generators and main switchboards. Two alternative distribution systems are examined to clarify the point.
