Electrical and Power Management System Troubleshooting

Electrical and Power Management System Troubleshooting

Power conservation and management is an integral part of vessel's operations which uses best practices and management guidelines to optimise vessel's power consumption. Its core is a Power Management System, an automated vessel's subsystem, required to ensure reliable, continuous and efficient power supply for the vessel. PMS key tasks are following:

  1. Cuts in/out the generators as a respond to load increase/decrease
  2. Gradually loads/unloads generator alternator sets, so as to minimise thermal and frictional stresses
  3. Performs load sharing among the generators, symmetrically or asymmetrically, depending on settings

Blackouts are critical situations and prevention is always the best approach, however, some things just can't be prevented.

If in trouble, call us.


Our troubleshooting services:

  • ME/AE PMS alarms 
  • Automation I/O cards alarms
  • Voltage and frequency regulation issues
  • Generator electrical protection issues
  • Main Switchboard and Group Starter Panel stand-by equipment issues
  • EDG control and monitoring
