Nowadays, the tole of a marine engineer working on board a ship requires deep technical knowledge of various relevant engineering disciplines and their application. In addition, nearly every single piece of the shipboard equipment is fed and/or controlled by electrical power. The present publication is intended to serve as a good textbook for marine engineering students and electro technical officers. However, it may also be used for self-study and included in libraries both ashore and onboard vessels as a very good reference source. The book consists of twenty-six chapters written in quite simple and easily understandable English. The author not only explains the fundamentals but he also deals with the operating principles, procedures for proper maintenance, design and construction features, and rules/regulations governing the safe and efficient operation of all shipboard electrical systems.
