As ships become increasingly automated, problems encountered with the application of automated systems, and the failures of automation and associated processor-based motor starters, may contribute to marine accidents.

 

Marine engineers and ETOs must have a good understanding of automated systems in order to maintain them in an efficient and safe operational condition.

 

This training package should be used to enhance and supplement your knowledge and skills. It will provide familiarisation with a variety of electrical appliances that are part of, or associated with, modern marine starter safety and control circuits.

 

Interactive circuit simulations related to this manual are available online in eBook version at the following link: http://www.witherbyseamanship.com/motor-starters-and-controls-for-marine-gears.html

 

This training package will benefit:

 

  • Management level marine engineers

  • operational level marine engineers

  • electricians with a lack of experience

  • engineering cadets

  • electrical engineering cadets

  • anyone who is starting to work with switchgear starters.

Ships have become increasingly automated, which has highlighted the inadequacies of existing education and training. Problems encountered with the application of automated systems, and the failures of automation and associated processor-based motor starters, are factors that will undoubtedly contribute to future marine accidents.

 

It is essential that marine engineers and ETOs have a good understanding of automated systems to maintain them in an efficient and safe operational condition.

 

This training package should be used to enhance and supplement your knowledge and skills. It will provide familiarisation with a variety of electrical appliances that are part of, or associated with, modern marine starter

safety and control circuits.

This training package is appropriate for:

 

  • Management level marine engineers

  • operational level marine engineers

  • electricians with a lack of experience

  • engineering cadets

  • electrical engineering cadets

  • anyone who is starting to work with switchgear starters.
