The marine ship lighting system is a significant unit of navigation to improve the safety of the crew. The traditional oceangoing voyage lighting power system has low efficiency, delays in troubleshooting times, and high energy consumption in the detection of fault points. Based on the Internet of Things (IoT) and automation, the authors proposed an intelligent lighting power detection method to ensure the safe, efficient, and stable operation of the oceangoing voyage. Specifically, in the distinct lighting and dynamic circuit multifault environment of the oceangoing voyage, the illumination detection time limit of a traditional lighting power system and the proposed intelligent lighting system were compared; the current and voltage values of the intelligent lighting system were measured and analyzed. This method proved to be effective in detecting a variety of faults of an oceangoing voyage lighting system and has fast and stable performance as well as high accuracy. Therefore, the proposed method can effectively avoid unexpected accidents caused by power lighting failures and improve the green energy-saving performance of oceangoing voyage lighting systems.
