Demand-compliant power output by the diesel generators saves fuel
The intelligent power management system BAS-PCS regulates demand-compliant power output of the diesel generators in the drive system, among other parameters. The software programmed by Baumüller adjusts the speed of the engines so that exactly the amount of power the boat currently needs is produced. This means, for example, that the vessel is only driven by one generator when traveling at moderate speed. If the ship needs to move faster or maneuver, the second generator is automatically switched on in a matter of seconds. The speed at which the software switches on the second engine renders it unnecessary for both engines to run continuously, thereby eliminating the need for a redundant system.

The smart power management system BAS-PCS makes it possible for ships to receive approval for running only one diesel unit when in operation. This saves fuel. If maximum power should be required quickly in emergency situations, this is detected by the system and made available accordingly.
Synchronization to the shore network: Power supply with shore power systeme
In addition, the power management system handles the synchronization with the shore power system when the ship is docked. This way, the ship is supplied with power by the shore power system and the diesel-powered power supply can be disconnected from the on-board electrical system. The system is designed in such a way that other energy sources, such as battery or fuel cell, can also be added.
Dashboard with current operating status of all drives
A monitor on the control console clearly shows information about the current operating status of all drives. The skipper is thus always kept informed and additional energy and therefore fuel are saved by the system’s self-regulation.
