Figure 13-12. 480 Volt Shore-Cable to Ship-Cable Splice Connection in Place
SHIP'S ELECTRICAL SERVICE COMPONENT RELATIONS. An
understanding of the physical and electrical arrangements of these components is
necessary in understanding the safety problems involved in the basics of using portable
power cables to feed shore electrical power to a ship's electrical bus.
Equipment Physical Relationships. Figure 13-13 shows diagrammatically
the physical relation of the ship and its power cable connections to the pier electrical
power service. Ships might have one, two, or three service ports requiring connections
to pier electrical outlets. Power cables need to be positioned to have equal length and
no sharp bends. Power cables might need protection as described in later sections.
