Generator is one of the prime machinery on board a ship. Ship’s generator supplies power to all other machines and acts like the lifeline of the ship.
Maintaining continuous power on the ship is one of the most important tasks while sailing. However, sometimes accidents are inevitable and due to some reason such as breakdown of machinery, technical snag etc. there can be a power failure on the ship. In case of blackout there should be an alternate source of power available and which should come on load automatically. Alternate source of power are taken from batteries and emergency generators to provide power to critical equipments. As batteries cannot provide power for a longer period of time, emergency generators are preferred.
An emergency steering system is used to guide the ship in case of the failure of the main steering system. In this article we will learn about the procedure for starting emergency steering system.
Synchronizing generators on a ship is required to share loads and to bring them in parallel. Know the procedure for synchronizing generators on a ship.
