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.

HyTEPS can help in various ways:

Power Quality measurements
Commissioning, inspection and service visits.
Reduce harmonic distortions created by multiple devices with an Active Harmonic Filter
AC + DC Arc Flash tests
Identifying a problem (during construction or after commissioning)
Delivering and maintaining solutions throughout the lifecycle

HyTEPS can support you with any power quality issue you may have. Do not hesitate to contact us.
