(EN) REMOTELY OPERATED VEHICLE POWER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AND METHOD OF USE
(FR) SYSTÈME DE GESTION DE PUISSANCE DE VÉHICULE ACTIONNÉ À DISTANCE (ROV) ET SON PROCÉDÉ D'UTILISATION
Abstract
(EN)
A power management system comprises a remotely operated vehicle (ROV), a tether management system (TMS), and an umbilical operatively in communication with the TMS external electrical power interface and the TMS-to-ROV umbilical interface. The system can be configured to provide electrical power management that moves some or all of the electrical power required for ROV propulsion and tooling to the ROV and/or TMS, and maximizes available power and manages loads across all systems as necessary and by priority. Power management may also be required that features intelligent routing of power to subsystems and integration of variable frequency drives (VFDs).

(FR)
La présente invention porte sur un système de gestion de puissance qui comprend un véhicule actionné à distance (ROV), un système de gestion de câble d'attache (TMS), et un ombilical en communication de manière fonctionnelle avec l'interface de puissance électrique externe de TMS et l'interface d'ombilical TMS-à-ROV. Le système peut être configuré pour fournir une gestion de puissance électrique qui déplace tout ou partie de la puissance électrique requise pour propulsion de ROV et un outillage vers le ROV et/ou le TMS, et rend maximale la puissance disponible et gère des charges sur l'ensemble de tous les systèmes si nécessaire et par priorité. Une gestion de puissance peut également être requise, qui caractérise un routage intelligent de puissance à des sous-systèmes et une intégration de commande de fréquence variable (VFD).
