Title: MATE Module 6: Power Systems; Supplies
Url: https://www.marinetech.org/module6/
Publisher: Marine Advanced Technology Education Center
Description: This module from the Marine Advanced Technology Education Center introduces basic electrical concepts as they apply to power systems for Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicles (ROVs). Students will learn more about volts, amps, ohms and watts as well as Ohm's Law. Students will learn to describe the safety hazards with power sources, perform simple Ohms Law calculations, select the proper meter for voltage and amperage measurements and connect it properly in the circuit, fabricate industry standard wire splices that are properly soldered and insulated, determine the appropriate type, size and capacity of battery or batteries for the ROV and their appropriate placement on the surface, estimate the total amount of energy and the maximum instantaneous power that a vehicle will require to complete its mission and select over current protection as dictated by the device being powered. A PowerPoint presentation of the lecture material is available for download.
