IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Introduces IEEE 45.3™-2015 Recommended Practice for Shipboard Electrical Installations – Systems Engineering

By Business Wire News   


IEEE, the world’s largest professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, today announced IEEE 45.3™-2015, IEEE Recommended Practice for Shipboard Electrical Installations – Systems Engineering, which is designed to give recommendations for systems engineering, design, and integration of electrical power systems at the total ship level.

This Smart News Release features multimedia. View the full release here:

“Today’s cruise ships and other vessels rely on self-generated electricity not only for power to move, but also to provide amenities and comforts akin to a resort hotel,” said Dwight Alexander, IEEE 45.3 working group chair. “All the components to provide this onboard electricity must be installed with the proper guidelines for design, testing and safety. IEEE 45.3 provides these guidelines to help ensure shipboard electrical installations to keep people cruising.”

IEEE 45.3 provides recommendations for the system level design of ac power systems, dc power systems, emergency power systems, shore power, quality of service, power quality and harmonics, electric propulsion and maneuvering systems, motors and drives, thrusters, and steering systems incorporated onboard ships.
