Electrical System

The AC electrical system is a three phase 120/208 volt distribution system with a maximum capacity of 60 kW. Power is supplied from two Onan generators and through one (1) 100 amp shore power connection. The vessel is fitted with a 25kVA shore power converter allowing connection to any shore connection worldwide. Provisions have been made for the seamless transfer of power from generator to generator, or generator to shore side power connection (Does not include shore power adaptor)

3.5 kva 120 volt AC inverter system for emergency power, control power to the helm station and for refrigeration during times when the generators are offline

AC outlets are standard US format 120 volt AC. Location shown on drawing

All outlets in head compartments, mechanical spaces, exterior and galley are GFCI type. All external outlets have water proof covers

One (1) Glendinning shore power cord retrieval system provided for the 120/208 volt AC, 100 amp. ships shore power connection. The system to be provided with 100' (30.48 m) of shore power cable. Shore power inlet to be located at the stern of the vessel


The DC electrical system is a 24 volt distribution system with a maximum capacity of 765 amp/hours. The DC system is to provide limited power the ships inverter system and provide power to the helm station DC equipment

Standard batteries are located per PAE machinery drawing and are provided as follows:

24 volt DC house battery bank - consists of six (6) 8D, 12 volt "Lifeline" AGM batteries @ 255 Ah each. connected in series/parallel. A total battery bank capacity of 765 amp/hours is provided for emergency, control, ships equipment and limited operation without operation of a generator or shore power connection

12 volt DC helm power is drawn from one (1) 4D battery

Port main engine starting - two (2) 4D "Lifeline" AGM connected in series for 24 volt starting. Switching logic to parallel with 24 volt house bank for emergency starting

Starboard main engine starting - two (2) 4D "Lifeline" AGM connected in series for 24 volt starting. Switching logic to parallel with 24 volt house bank for emergency starting

#1 Generator starting - two ( 2) Group 31 “Lifeline” AGM connected in series for 24 volt starting. Switching logic to parallel with 24 volt house bank for emergency starting

#2 Generator starting - two (2) Group 31 “Lifeline” AGM connected in series for 24 volt starting. Switching logic to parallel with 24 volt house bank for emergency starting

24 volt battery charging is provided in the following ways:

Inverter/charger provides a total of 70 amps at 24 volts for the house battery bank

Main engine starting battery bank is charged from the respective engine alternator

Generator starting battery bank is charged from the respective engine alternator

Each charging source can be switched to accommodate any single failure of a charging device.

12 volt wheel house battery is charged by a Victron Energy Model #CCH012050000 Centaur battery charger 12 volt / 50A
