This paper analyzes re-degaussing performances of various breakdown conditions of degaussing coils in a ship to reduce underwater magnetic field anomaly due to the hull magnetization induced under the Earth's magnetic field. To achieve this, first, it is implemented to optimize degaussing coil currents by a magnetomotive force sensitivity formula combined with the coil effects. The re-degaussing processes are then executed when a breakdown occurs in degaussing coils, one by one. Finally, the re-degaussing performances are examined with the results of normal degaussing and coil breakdown conditions.
