Ship propulsion compliance

Virtual conference:
Can DC compete with medium voltage on board?

Speaker: Asbjørn Halsebakke, Manager, Technical Solutions, Marine, Yaskawa Environmental Energy / The Switch

Asbjørn Halsebakke will present how large DC systems connected in a ring configuration can lower the short circuit contribution that enables low-voltage DC installations to compete efficiently with a standard medium voltage (MV) / high voltage (HV) solution. Batteries then help reduce the power peaks of the installation, further reducing the need for generators and decreasing the need for generator maintenance.

Halsebakke leads his team in engineering marine drive solutions, frequency converters and rotating machinery, which are in use today with the utmost reliability on vessels throughout the world.
