This paper investigates the safety consequences of the use of EMI filters on board ships. Ship's power supply systems differ from their land-based counterparts but there are no special “EMI filters for ship-board use” on the market. The paper shows that the level of protection against electric shock is severely undermined when normal EMI filters are applied… CONTINUE READING
