LARGE ELECTRICAL BUS BARS IN PROTECTED DUCTS FOR AN ADVANCED SHIP
This study discusses and evaluates the investigation, availability, and adaptability of electrical bus ducting systems to cargo ships such as the C-4. It compares two types of systems of relative reliability, space requirements, and flexibility. Advantages of adapting this type of system include: reduction of cumbersome installations; inproved maintenance conditions; reduction of cable sizes, cost and installation time. Disadvantages include the fact that this type of system is subject to certain regulatory limits. It concludes that ships be given individual consideration before deciding which type of system to use. One half of the document contains figures including schematic diagrams of bus duct systems.
