Degaussing Power Supply
Depending on the respective type of vessel the "DEG COMP MOD 2" system makes use of two different coil supply concepts:
- The centralised coil supply concept, which is intended for vessels having a low-power demand per coil e.g. MCMVs and non-magnetic submarines. This allows the power amplifiers for the individual degaussing coils to be arranged in a centrally located amplifier cabinet.
- The decentralised coil supply concept, which is intended for vessels having a higher power demand per coil e.g. ferromagnetic surface combatants and supply vessels. They make use of individual Degaussing Power Amplifier Units (DPU) arranged near the connected coil.
Both power supply concepts use a family of current controlled amplifiers of different configuration and power rating, each suitable for the direct supply of the respective sum current to the connected degaussing coil.
