Electric & Hybrid Marine Virtual Live 2021
19 January @ 08:00 - 21 January @ 19:00
We’re sponsoring and participating the very first virtual edition of the Electric and Hybrid Marine World Expo. During this event shipowners, naval architects and engineers will present the next generation of electric and hybrid marine propulsion technologies.
During the Power System session on January 20 we will present and discuss the following topics:
DC grids are an ideal solution to support the increased requirements of the onboard power (and in some cases energy storage) system. Proper protection however remains challenging. Peter van den Berg -Consultant at KWx BV- and Andy Stöckli -CTO at Astrol Electronic AG- will present protection possibilities based on the solid-state DC breaker technology. Thanks to the ultra-fast switch-off times, it prevents arcing in case of short-circuit situations.
The following topics will also be presented:
- Closed bus operation,
- zone protection,
- detection of single earth faults.
Please check out the conference program and sign up for free. We hope to virtually meet you on January 20!
