Energy Management System (EMS)

Høglund EMS- the vessel’s Energy Management Control

Høglund EMS is the overall control system for the energy management on the vessel and is included within all Høglund Battery installations. It will at all times make sure that the energy consumption is within the limits of the battery and generating units, as well as the propulsion drives.

Safeguarding Against Total Blackout

Energy Management System main task is to feed power to the switchboard from the batteries and prevent the vessel from suffering total blackout. In most cases Høglund EMS will only assist the engines connected with some additional power in order to keep the frequency, but even if the generator engine is tripped, the battery system will be able to feed the whole vessel with power. The time period in which this is possible depends on the installed battery capacity. It may vary from some minutes, to several hours.
