The Superyacht Professor

Electrical Control Systems

This new course has been designed and written over the last four years by SeaSystems (UK) Ltd. and will be presented by controls industry veteran, Andy Ridyard CEng FIET

Hourly Schedule

Day 1 - Fundamentals

9.00am - 10.30am
BAS
We start with current flow fundamentals, from electrons up, with revision of units and symbols for electricity, then understanding basic electrical circuits using analogies.
10.45am - 12.40pm
FLT
We help you to develop your basis troubleshooting toolkit for modern electrical & electronic systems.
1.15pmpm - 4.30pm
OHM
Enhance your deeper circuit understanding by applying basic electrical measurements rigorously. With hands-on, custom practical (Didactic 01) after mid-afternoon break. Like the famous Sherlock Holmes, we make you very curious about current.

Day 2 - Intermediate

9am - 10.30am
BAT
We take an in depth look at batteries, chargers and inverters. And some of the latest development in hybrid systems
10.45AM - 12.30PM
DCS
How do distributed controls work on board; with introduction to Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs).
1.15PM - 4.30PM
GEN-A
Shore power; an introduction to single phase and three phase systems. With practical measurements by guided video instruction, after mid-afternoon break.

DAY 3 - Proficient

9.am - 10.30am
HYD
We delve into hydraulic controls for large sailing vessels. A big subject with big powers and enormous loads!
10.45am - 12.30pm
DRV
Drives primer: Variable frequency drives vs. soft starters
1.15pm - 4.30pm
GEN-B
In this second big module on generators, we look in depth at the controls and power management systems. With practical video training of multiple generator set-up, from synchronisation through to load-sharing.

Day 4 - Advanced

9am - 10.30am
SEN
With this primer on measurement methods and sensor interfacing you’ll be equipped to understand almost 99% of sensors found on the modern superyacht.
10.45am - 12.30pm
AMS
Now you’ll be ready to deeply understand Alarm Monitoring (& control) Systems in this module, bringing together much content from the previous modules
1.15pm - 4.30pm
PLC
Programmable Logic Controllers, the biggest module. You’ll understand purpose and functions on board and be able to speak their language, with a guided practical (Didactic 02) to PLC graphical programming.
