Shipboard Grounding Training

Our Shipboard Electrical Grounding Training Course Covers The Increased Use Of Electrical And Electronic Equipment Aboard Naval Ships, Which Introduces The Risk Of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Problems To Ship Operation And Performance.

The increased use of electrical and electronic equipment aboard Naval ships introduces risk of electromagnetic interference (EMI) problems to ship operation and performance.

As systems are added, they all contribute and could become susceptible to an intense electromagnetic environment (EME). Considering the corrosive salt water environment in which ships must operate and the interaction of a ship’s electrically conductive metallic superstructure, topside hardware, antenna systems, etc., the potential for interoperability problems is significantly increased.
