The target of this paper is twofold: primarily to highlight the significant effect of certain power supply quality problems on the normal operation of the entire ship grid, namely inrush currents and voltage dips due to manoeuvring thruster motor starting-ups. At a second stage, the paper aims at recommending some amelioration of standardization status. Hence, the authors suggest the exploitation of existing experience on pulsed load standardizing, taking into account the resemblance between the systems. The study is enriched by actual case studies and simulations in PSCAD computer program.
