Some ships generate electrical power at 440 V, but then step up this voltage to supply specific electrical equipment. One common example, may be to feed a large bow thruster. Why is this done?
The overall ship’s electrical load does not justify a High Voltage generating plant. This method allows more power to be delivered to the bow thruster at low running cost.
Manufacturers can supply High Voltage bow thrusters at less cost, and the power factor is improved.
A large bow thruster will draw very large currents at low voltage. Being typically remote from the generator, significant voltage drops would occur at low voltage.
