Single source and pov[edit]

This article seems to rely on a single source of information: ABB AS. Consequently, it reads like a promotional pamphlet. One of the two external links is sponsored by ABB AS - the LinkedIn group requires membership that this editor does not have.

This is unfortunate, but seeing as ABB is the only company (and only organization) presently making arguments for and developing these systems, that's what we end up with. A ship was ordered in November last year that will be equipped with this system, but until then there is no third party source. There might be some research or such available, but not that I know of. --Joffeloff (talk) 13:29, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
Added links to more companies that is developing solutions based on the same concept. Ensby
The article still has only one cited source. You are encouraged to edit the article to include information from the external sources that you've recently provided.

ABB promotional work[edit]

ABB is in fact not the only company promoting these systems. On the contrary: the system integrator E-Powered Marine Solutions from Hamburg ( has already equipped eight vessels with this very system topology under the trademark 'E-Power Pack' and has applied for a patent years ago. This article appears to be part of ABB's campaign to promote their solution and is by no means neutral. I will watch this talk page and try to help with a more neutral point of view when I can spare the time next month. Björn Andersen (talk) 15:45, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Johs Ensby of ABB A/S contributes to the product website DC grid. The username Ensby leads me to believe he may be the same (or in close personal relation to the) person that wrote this article. Thus I added the {{Connected contributor}} tag. Björn Andersen (talk) 09:44, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Other possible applications[edit]

I wonder how long it will be before 25 kV AC railway electrification becomes 25 kV DC railway electrification. There would be some advantages, e.g. no risk of unbalancing 3-phase supplies. Biscuittin (talk) 22:37, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
