This publication was written by Tingting Yang and Sherman Shen who made an attempt to cover the constantly emerging networks of maritime wideband communications. The authors are trying to describe to the readers how such networks facilitate the applications like general communications, urgency, maritime distress etc. This book was initially intended to provide a good insight to the scheduling of the maritime data transmission and to the protocol design for the network that has been mentioned above.
The book starts with some brief intro to the networks including their principal architecture, framework and operation principles, and it also includes a survey on current developments in this area. The next part of the book will present the resource allocation as well as the scheduling for the video transmission with the aim to maximize the weights of the video packets being uploaded and transferred. The duet of authors are also proposing an energy and content-aware scheduling scheme for better packet throughput.
Basing on the real vessel route traces received from the navigation programs, the results of the simulations are demonstrating the true viability of the schemes proposed. In addition, the conclusions and valuable suggestions for the future researches have been discussed in this book...

The present volume covers the driven bodies and transmission including their types and characteristics, resolution and speed adaptation etc., electric motors and their characterization including parametric expression and scaling laws, global design of the electric drives, electrical and electronic peripheral items, sensors of various types, current and protection sensors, direct and integrated drives including their working principle and realization. In short, the publication provides all necessary information on the design of electric drives that will be needful in the industry.
An excellent guide to the electrical technology on board ships released by the MarineInsight team. Any vessel is like a floating city enjoying nearly all privileges that are commonly available to any of those operational set-ups ashore. Like any city, the vessel requires some fundamental amenities in order to sustain life on boars, and the most important of the amenities would be electrical power, which is generated by shipboard generator or alternator working together.
The material in this booklet is arranged in four sections. The first section provides the general information on power generation, shipboard HV systems and electrical propulsion of vessels. The second section of the book is devoted to the electrical instruments including PMMC and Megger, thermocouples, rectifiers and amplifiers together with the associated circuits.
The next section addresses electrical safety on board ship, covering safety devices fitted on the main switchboard, electrical fires and insulation, safety and precautions, generator safety matters and blackouts. The closing section of the volume is dealing with the electrical maintenance including electrical faults, relay maintenance, motor overhaul, maintenance of bus bars and alternators, and routine inspection of electrical starter panel.
