ENABLING SAFE AND SUSTAINABLE SHIP OPERATIONS
As the awareness and need for sustainable ship operations increases, interest and demand for hybrid power systems for ships are growing. Blue EMS is a modern Energy Management System based on the X-CONNECT® platform for managing power systems that combine traditional power generation with electrical battery storage.
Blue EMS is flexible and scalable and can handle simple and complex power systems for small and large vessels. In operation, the EMS manages electrical power generation and energy storage to minimize fuel consumption while ensuring power grid stability and safe operations.
Blue EMS is an integrated and seamless part of the X-CONNECT® platform, accessible from the same user-friendly interface as other X-CONNECT® products. Blue EMS integrates with Blue PMS and with most modern electrical battery storage systems. The system applies to both hybrid and battery-only powered systems. In operation, the system integrates and synchronizes with Blue PMS, switchboard cells, battery converters and battery management systems.
Blue EMS includes several features for charging and discharging one or several batteries and controlling battery connection to the ships’ power grid or shore power. The system manages peak shaving for relieving load variation on generators, load smoothing for shaving variations from load average and the use of batteries as a spinning reserve to avoid blackout if power generation fails. All features are configurable to meet the ship operator requirements and desired results.
Blue EMS meet different requirements from customers and class societies. Topology and hardware flexibility minimize system installation space, hardware usage and location.
