Influence of ROV umbilical on power quality when supplying electrical loads
The paper investigates the effects of a 3 km electrical umbilical cable on power transmission for an "island" supply onboard an all/more electric 'work-class' remote operated vehicle (ROV). It is shown how the chosen transmission voltage and frequency influence efficiency and the selection of power transmission components. A key feature of the paper is a discussion on the use of matrix converters for the propulsion thruster drive system; thereby allowing the input displacement factor to be varied to maintain maximum power transmission efficiency, independent of the thruster power factor. The natural impedance characteristics of the umbilical cable are also considered as means of reducing the input filter requirements for such converters
