The availability of electrical power supply is vital for keeping a vessel and its systems operational. The Rhodium Power Management System (PMS) is employed for the generation and distribution of electrical energy and ensures power supply to the platform systems in accordance with the various operational readiness conditions. The electrical power supply system provides and distributes the generated energy at the required and specified voltage and frequency values.
The PMS is an independent and fully autonomous stand-alone system. It consists of dedicated PMS control units. The PMS control units are door mounted in the Generator sections of the Main Switchboards. The PMS control units interface with the engines, generators, main switchboards and other generator systems. The Rhodium PMS is controlled via the local control panels of the PMS control units.
The Rhodium PMS comprises separate control units for:
The PMS performs the following automatic functions:
The Rhodium PMS system offers full integration with the Rhodium AMCS, PCS and DPT systems. Besides the PMS control panel, the Rhodium PMS can also be controlled and monitored via dedicated viewers in the AMCS. Therefore it’s not necessary for the operator to be at the local PMS control panel. The integration with the PCS guarantees full support for electrical and hybrid propulsion systems. Integration with DPT systems guarantees sufficient electrical power for position holding, track keeping and speed keeping.
