Service Features

Our Analysis & Design

We perform all phases of system engineering and design (conceptual through detailed design) to develop or improve the entire spectrum of marine electrical systems, including:

  • Power generation and distribution
  • Power conversion
  • Power controls and supervisory controls
  • Electrical instrumentation
  • Auxiliary equipment
  • Monitoring

Design processes include:

  • Detailed analyses for voltage drops
  • Fault current
  • Transient loads
  • Electric loads
  • Synchro loads and lighting requirements are accomplished manually or using computer software

Our detailed analyses provide the necessary data to determine the required characteristics of generators, switchboards, load centres, power panels and other equipment.

 

Design, Integration & Electrical Systems Testing

Gibbs & Cox possesses extensive experience in design, integration, and electrical systems testing.

We provide expert service in feasibility and trade-off studies; preliminary design; contract design and detailed design of shipboard and land-based test site power generation and distribution system installations; and test and trials support to identify and correct problems.

Gibbs & Cox uses several software solutions for electrical power systems analysis and design, which provide comprehensive and integrated power system modules for modeling and operations simulation.
