Unconditional system availability is one of the primary requirements of an integrated automation system for naval surface vessels, especially when it comes to reliability of the onboard power supply. IPMS, Siemens Energy’s integrated automation system for naval surface vessels, features redundant monitoring and control of the propulsion system and other onboard subsystems. Thus, IPMS guarantees the mission-critical functionality of all onboard electrical systems, even in emergency situations.
The system monitors and controls all the power modules, from the diesel engine and gas turbine to the transmission and pumps right through to the exhaust system, including ancillary modules such as fuel supply, ventilation, and fire alarm systems. Its integrated energy management capability ensures reliable power supply and energy distribution in every situation.
