Course Aim

This course provides students with the theoretical knowledge and safety principles of working with high voltage (>1000V) ship installations. The students will be prepared for management responsibility of a marine electrical power plant of greater than 1,000V. This course meets the requirements of STCW 1978 as amended, A-III/2 and model course 2.1.4 Design features of high-voltage installations.

Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe the generation and distribution of high voltage on ships
  • Describe the electrical propulsion system
  • Explain the function of synchro-convertors and cyclo convertors
  • Describe functional, operations and safety requirements for a marine high voltage system
  • Assign suitably qualified personnel to carry out maintenance and repair of high voltage switchgear of various types
  • Explain high voltage system advantages
  • Describe the advantages of an insulated system
  • Explain the key features of high voltage circuit breakers, cable and fuses
  • Take remedial action necessary during faults in a high voltage systems
  • Produce a switching strategy for isolating components of a high voltage system
  • Select of suitable apparatus for testing of high voltage equipment, and complete safety documentation
  • Perform tests of insulation resistance and polarization index on high voltage equipment
