The content of the volume bases on the lectures read to the students and practicing specialists employed by the oil majors. The publication will provide readers with the good balance between theory and practice.
This is a very comprehensive volume where the applications of the electrical engineering have been detailed as applied to the oil and gas industry, and it will also give necessary guidance to the various electrical systems and equipment normally installed on board offshore facilities, such as the drilling units.
Dozens of the practical examples have been included by the author to enable reader to perform accurate and quick assessments; they will also demonstrate the topics being explained, with the practical data. Each of the section of the volume feature the initial revision and some reference part which should be read before you proceed to the practical part. More than thirty years of the practical experience of the author found their reflection in the pages of this brilliant volume.
The very first edition of the volume was published back in 1993 and immediately gained worldwide popularity. The second edition offered to your attention is even better since it reflects all advances and developments in the field of electrical engineering. The book is deservedly considered one of the most comprehensive volumes featuring almost three thousand pages with valuable information including definitions, formulas and tables.
The content was developed based on the contributions of more than two hundred recognized specialists. With substantially revised and updated material, the book will be a great reference tool for any electrical engineer. The material is conveniently arranged in twelve sections encompassing all electrical engineering fields, starting with the electric circuits and signal processing. Then, the readers will proceed to the electromagnetics and electronics, electrical devices and other important topics.
All explanations are very clear and the coverage is really impressive. The publication shall be on the bookshelf of any practicing electrical engineer to be used as a ready reference, and also every student of electrical engineer who will definitely benefit from the easy-to-understand explanations.
The content of the present volume reflects the results of the more that thirty-five years of practical experience of the author as well as his years teaching the marine electrical engineering. The volume is intended to cover the entire scope of the Marine Engineers and ETO syllabus as applied to the merchant ships, and will also be useful for the people engaged in the training for qualification for the competency exams. The requirements of the STCW have been kept in mind when preparing the material. There are hundreds of the photos and figures supplementing the text part of the publication, provided by the leading manufacturers of the relevant equipment.
The document covers such the important aspects of marine electrical engineering as the safe working practices to be considered when performing any works, practical aspects of any electrical circuits, ex-proof equipment commonly found on board ships and offshore installations, instrumentation and automation systems becoming more and more popular these days, and all components of the shipboard electric systems, there is a separate chapter devoted solely to the electric switchboard and alternators, as well as the switchgear, motor control arrangements and many other areas considered critically important.
Electromagnetics is commonly referred to as the interaction of two fields, namely electric and magnetic, in association with the so-called radiated energy. So the main focus here in this book is made on the devices normally found installed on board vessels. Such devices emit electromagnetic waves or sense them, and the subject waves belong to the spectrum between the extremely low and extremely high frequencies.
The authors did not address the light waves and some other portions of the spectrum in the pages of this volume in depth. Every effort was made by them to avoid complicated mathematical treatment. The book opens with the historical overview of the subject, followed with the chapter on EME, standing for the shipboard electromagnetic environment. Then we will proceed to the EMC, i.e. electromagnetic capability, and EMI, i.e. electromagnetic interference.
Three chapters devoted to the EMR, EMP and EMA, meaning the electromagnetic radiation hazards, pulse, and assessment, conclude the main part of the publication. The glossary will provide explanation of the terminology used in the book. This is quite rare volume and it is recommended to be on the bookshelf of any ship electrician.
This content of the present guidebook was prepared specifically for the electrical engineers involved in the design and selection of the electrical equipment, as well as its subsequent installation and technical maintenance and inspection. The low-voltage installation complying with the IEC standards are covered.
The main idea of the authors was to provide engineers with the clear and step by step information for the full study of the installation. In fact, this is a quite compact yet remarkably comprehensive publication which covers all applicable standards and techniques, making it a best choice for the electrical engineering professionals. The intention is to facilitate the proper and timely implementation of the IEC standards by the designers of the electrical equipment and contractors.
This latest edition of the guide considers all recent changes in the techniques, applicable standards and regulatory framework. The book will take you all the way starting from the general rules of the design of electrical installation and connection of the LV/MV distribution networks, and up to the harmonic management and EMC guidelines, so you will find everything covered.
As the readers begin their journey through this brilliant book, they will get to know absolutely everything related to the electricity used nearly everywhere owing to the detailed examination and analysis by the author. Of course, the author duly appreciated the differences in the electrical wiring requirements applied in different areas. The wiring will be examined in detail, leaving no unanswered questions.
In fact, the intention was that the readers would not only why the wiring is done this way or another, but also how same is accomplished by the specialists. The content was developed based on the valuable contributions by the industry professionals – the master electricians featuring excellent theoretical knowledge and decades of practical experience. First of all, the essential circuit types will be examined together with composition of electricity and its handling.
There will be interesting information given on the wires and the way the electricity actually flows. Of course, you also should have the basic understanding of the electrical insulation including the most commonly used types and their application. In short, the volume covers absolutely everything you would need to know in order to feel confident when dealing with the electrical wiring anywhere.
The present volume is a great textbook on electrical engineering. Written by the team of recognized experts, the publication will provide readers with a truly comprehensive and detailed coverage of all basic technical concepts of the subject. The content of the book was compiled from the engineering perspective and the special accent was made on circuit functionality as well as on the applications.
The approach applied by the author allows the book to be recommended to the broad readership from students of electrical engineering and associated disciplines to the practicing engineers. The main declared goal of the authors was to teach students all important instruments they should understand and enable them to perform the analysis of different electrical systems and circuits. The second aim was to give readers a good reference tool.
Apart from the easily understandable explanations, the text of the book is full of figures and homework problems making the learning process go smoother.
