A new procedure for the distribution of current in ships' electrical systems is described. The method employs a technique of transverse separation via paired choke coils, magnetically coupled and with antiparallel switching to compensate for unsymmetrical loading of the electrical currents. By redundant provision for the main users, it is possible to operate switchgear without any significant limitation of the ship's performance. The method allows for the continuous supply of power, even in the event of short-circuiting a bus-bar and reduces the risk of accidents. An application example is given in which the new arrangement is compared with the conventional longitudinally coupled system incorporating a current limiter. Order from BSRA as No. 54,361.
