Abstract

Electrical layout system of unmanned remotely operated vehicles is an intact system composed of power supply, power distribution, and ROV electricity loading. Power is generally divided into two types of alternating current and direct current. Power distribution part includes power-up cable, electric wire and distribution machine. The electric energy obtained by electricity changer (like transformer and rectifier, and so on) is regarded as secondary power of the system. Power loading of the system is the electric energy used by all kinds of ROV electric equipment. The research is to enquire the electrical load need of the systems in ROV first. It is necessary to plan the layout kinds and quantity of the electricity used by the ROV, to evaluate and design ROV electric loading system, and to simulate the transfer process of the transformer with a computer to ensure power stability and enough electricity supply; and then the stability of electricity and control signals by ship transmission to ROV through cable is tested. After a test in a non-current channel, this research has the test in the ocean current to confirm that the electricity and signal transmission between ROV and the other systems are successfully obtained.
