At Unitech Power Systems we are experienced in all related electric power analyses required to ensure power system/supply functionality, including long step-out motor drives. Although there are as yet no subsea high voltage power distribution systems in existence, we have all related system know-how in-house.
High-quality electric parameters of subsea cables and (power) umbilicals are key input data to any successful subsea power system analysis. Our personnel have in-depth experience from several years of modeling such cables/umbilicals, including full-scale measurements for model verification. Developed modeling techniques are known to result in highly realistic, computed parameters.
The world of subsea engineering is generally multi-disciplinary, particularly with respect to electric power. For example, small phase-imbalance effects in the power system might have a huge impact on corrosion aspects. Electromagnetic crosstalk, neutral earthing philosophy, and coupled electro-thermal considerations and analyses are only examples of issues to be addressed during system design/definition.
Our personnel has in-depth experience with engineering for subsea power projects since the mid-1990s, as well as massive experience with subsea cable and umbilical design and manufacturing.
