THE ELECTRICAL POWER SYSTEM IN THE QUEEN ELIZABETH II--DESIGN AND OPERATIONAL EXPERIENCE

This paper covers the principal problems encountered in arranging for the generation and distribution of electrical power in the most complex and sophisticated passenger liner afloat. It goes on to describe the unconventional solutions which resulted, some after considerable research and development. During testing and commissioning, a number of unusual failures occurred and one of these highlighted the need for specially designed system protection devices. The paper concludes by reviewing the electrical power systems, in the light of operational experience.
