An Amplifier or an operational amplifier (op-amp) circuit is commonly used in the automation, control and other electronic circuits for marine applications. The applied input signal is usually a voltage or a current signal.
Alternate marine power or cold ironing is a method of providing power to the ship from an external source. AMP is getting recognition around the world because of the rise in marine pollution.
Do you know what is marine electricity and how it is generated? Find out everything about marine electrical systems inside this article.
Just like any other machinery systems on board ships, motor starter panel also needs regular maintenance to ensure smooth operations of motors. The article explains important points and procedure for motor starter panel routines and maintenance.
Ohmmeter is a portable instrument which is used to measure the insulation resistance of the electrical machinery and gives a direct reading in ohms.
The popularity of 3 phase induction motors on board ships is because of their simple, robust construction, and high-reliability factor in the sea environment. A 3 phase induction motor can be used for different applications with various speed and load requirements.
Batteries are one of the energy sources available onboard vessels which are used in case of blackout and emergency situations on board a ship.
Energy efficiency is of sheer importance in all aspects of shipping operations today. The electrical system being one of the most important aspects on board must be included in the ship’s energy efficiency plans. Learn ten ways to achieve energy efficiency in ship’s electrical system.
