A REALISTIC APPROACH TO ELECTRICAL LOAD ANALYSIS FOR MARINE VESSELS

Electrical Load Analyses prepared as an engineering aid in the proper sizing of generation equipment have historically indicated unrealistically high electrical loads. The paper discusses a more realistic method of evaluating electrical loads for marine vessels, aided by information from Data Acquisition Systems on board various vessels and based on past engineering and operating experience. This method greatly improves the accuracy of load estimates compared to load analysis methods typically used for industrial-type projects.
