While the publication was originally written with the automotive industry in mind, the content will also be useful to the engineers engaged in the marine industry. The introduction is followed with the first chapter dealing with the engine supervision methods, troubleshooting and fault finding, and different methods that are used for diagnosis and belong to the general field of condition monitoring of the technical process.
The idea is to give a correct indication of any undesired states requiring action in order to avoid any accidents or damages. The second chapter is entirely devoted to the diagnosis works on the internal combustion engines, while the third one is dealing with the electric drives, actuators and motors. The fourth chapter addresses the fault-tolerant systems together with their basic components.
Finally, the appendix to the main part of the publication contains additional information about the models and functions, properties for the systems, as well as the associated states and signals. The publication will be of practical use for the people involved in the technical maintenance and repair of the internal combustion engines as part of their duties.
