VESSEL MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Our Vessel Management Systems use standard PLCs, I/O modules, and HMI touchscreens. The hardware is fully redundant, including processors, communication links, and power supplies. The Vessel Management Systems are developed to meet specific application, customer, and regulatory requirements. These systems are designed to be operated from the bridge with HMI touchscreens that are simple and intuitive to use. Typical automation functions include:
VARIABLE FREQUENCY DRIVES
Current Power Solutions manufactures high-power motor drives that are designed for reliability and maintainability. Air-cooled and water-cooled Variable Frequency Drives are available with ratings up to 4.5 MW (6000HP). The power bridges are modular for ease of serviceability. The drives are supplied with digital controllers that are programmed to suit specific applications including thrusters, cranes, winches, pumps, and cutters.
SWITCHGEAR & SWITCHBOARDS
Our high-power switchgear and switchboards are built to customer specifications and application requirements. The switchboards are fabricated to meet the requirements of the environment, marine classification societies, and a variety of electrical standards (e.g. IEC, CSA, ANSI, IEEE). The switchboards are available with the following ratings.
Current Power Solutions manufactures generator controls for all of the major engine and generator manufacturers. Typical controls include those required for synchronizing parallel generators, load sharing, and power management.
Engineering studies include short circuit analysis, load flow studies, protective device coordination, bus bracing, and harmonic analysis.
