Paper Abstract

Measurements where performed on four channels by means of an autonomous equipment (galvanic separated and not supplied from the ship’s mains) performed on board of some maritime transport vessels, inside the Port of Constanţa aquatorium.

Distorted voltages where state in the distribution panels. The sources of those distortions are the switching power supplies of the electric drives. The novelty of our work states in performing those measurements during the inside port maneuvers, when the operating time of each electric equipment is non definable. Harmonic distortions caused by the switching power converters lower the Power Factor. There is no better manner to find out the main distortions sources on board of a maritime transport vessel than to perform the measurements directly, on each location.
