Continuous DC monitoring onboard ships

The morEnergy DC MoMe is the first power quality and grid impedance measurement device for onboard, live DC grid monitoring.

The morEnergy DC MoMe *coming soon*

Electrical behaviour of DC-grids

The electrical behaviour of ships with DC-grids are relatively unstudied and therefore unknown. DC grids of ships behave very differently to AC grids because of the high number of power converters, the more capacitive behaviour, and the lack of zero crossing in load currents.


Power quality and health monitoring

DC ships with a high number of switching converters and constantly changing load conditions should be monitored in real-time at the switchboard and the cabins to ensure safe operations and unnecessary tripping of protective devices.


Time- and frequency dependent grid impedance

Modern AC/DC and DC/DC converters could switch at a grid resonance frequency. The knowledge of resonance points can avoid such switching and prolong lifetime of electrical components like filters.
