Fishing vessels normally have installed many nonlinear loads with high variations that may cause a harmonic problem and their power systems requires high electrical safety and stability which are slightly different from the power system used in lands. Harmonics may cause malfunction on equipment or decrease life duration of equipment, even possibly damage the insulation. One of the problems needed to investigate on a modernized fishing vessel is how to effectively save energy. In addition, the electrical environment of a fishing vessel is complex because there are many electrical facilities and electronic devices used on boards. Research has shown electromagnetic radiation may have a potential effect to harm human health and decrease life duration of equipment. As a result, this paper will compare computer simulations and in-situ measurements of magnetic fields and harmonics generated from power systems on fishing vessels based on the standard of non-ionizing radiation protection in order to investigate the electromagnetic environment of fishing vessels.
