With increase in modern technology and automation in ship’s machinery and operations, electronic circuits like printed circuit board or PCB along with signal transducer and transmission system are popularly used onboard. Since these are very small and vital circuits they require proper location and precaution for their installation.
With the increase in demand for alternative propulsion systems that not only improve the overall efficiency of the ship but also reduce the carbon footprints, innovators in the shipping industry are leaving no stone unturned to find a solution to this grave problem.
Marine Insight is launching a new FREE ebook – A Guide to Electro-Technology – Part 1 for electrical officers and marine engineers. The ebook answers some of the most commonly asked questions asked by shipping professionals.
Preferential trip is a kind of electrical arrangement on ship which is designed to disconnect the non-essential circuit i.e. non-essential load from the main bus
Since most of the ship generates A.C current from its alternator, it becomes essential to use a device, along with transformer, which can convert this A.C current into D.C current for the use of those equipment or circuit running on D.C.
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.
