Wärtsilä Power Management System (PMS)
The Wärtsilä Power Management System (PMS) is an in-house developed solution, best suited for complex diesel electric powered vessels. It contains all standard functions, such as load dependant start/stop, load sharing, synchronising, load shedding, etc., but is capable of much more. In cases where a vessel is fitted with Wärtsilä engines, generators, and propellers/thrusters, the Wärtsilä PMS ensures an optimally tuned power system that reduces the risk of performance failures and blackouts. By integrating the power, automation and propulsion, the load can be quickly reduced so as to prevent overload or blackout.
The Wärtsilä PMS has several advanced options, including control of the patented Low Loss Concept (LLC) to reduce distribution losses, increase energy availability, and save space and installation costs.
The Wärtsilä PMS is designed to be seamlessly integrated with the high end Wärtsilä automation system family (Wärtsilä Integrated Automation System). However, the Wärtsilä PMS also has the flexibility to interface with an installed automation system from a third party supplier. Wärtsilä is a provider of proven Power Management System solutions with more than 130 new build references, including for DP 2/3 Class specialised vessels to the offshore industry.
