Preface

 

This book’s objective is to help marine and electrical engineers acquire the knowledge required by STCW for management and operational level endorsements and become more familiar with various electrical applications that can be found on board ship.

 

The systems are explained in terms of their operating principles and safe working practices. The type and significance of various electrical appliances, circuits and faults are considered and a common troubleshooting practice is examined.

 

A wide range of onboard ancillary electrical services are described, along with detailed information on battery support, care and maintenance.

 

The application and operating principles of electrical propulsion are examined, as well as high voltage practice, safety procedures and testing methods.

 

This book will be helpful to management and operational level marine engineers, electrical engineers and electricians, as well as students currently studying marine and electrical engineering.
