On yachts, Power Quality is essential to ensuring the safety, reliability and capacity of electrical installations. Due to the increased use of inverters – such as LED lighting and variable speed drives – excessive harmonic distortion in voltage and current can occur. Poor power quality can also manifest itself in flickering lights, heat build-up, overloading of generators and switchgear and fast aging of connected equipment. To prevent such issues, certification companies set requirements for the maximum harmonic pollution on yachts. A common requirement is a maximum voltage harmonic distortion (THDu) of 5% – but meeting the standard does not guarantee a trouble-free installation.
