This popular publication is intended to describe all up-to-date electrical practices that have been employed in international shipping of today. The contents of this handbook was specifically designed to provide all required training support to the students. The specific intention of the authors was to assist the marine engineers and electrical officers in proper understanding of the shipboard electrical installations, equipment, systems and their maintenance.
The electrical power system of the vessel has been explained in terms of the main and emergency generation and distribution, including the matters of the electrical safety and associated safe working practices. The types of the faults occurring in the electrical circuits and their significant have been examined together with the different protection forms and methods. In addition to that, the book explains the construction of motors and starters as well as their operation and protection principles.
The title includes a surveys of the variable speed control methods for motors as applicable to the vessels. Moreover, the publication describes all electrical services for ships refrigeration installations, A/C, cathodic protection, lighting and various auxiliary equipment...
This publication is fully dedicated to the electronic devices and circuit theory; the intention of the author was to offer the students a thorough and comprehensive study of the subject topics. The material that has been provided in this publication will be of use for people willing to improve their technical knowledge and know hot to apply it to the day-to-day operations.
The authors of the book took a systems approach, covering the topics in a special fashion that allows to ensure students comprehend all fundamental aspects like transistors and diodes before they start with more advanced topics. The content of this textbook is mainly based on the semiconductor components. The authors of the book has explained to the readers what the diodes are and how they work, the reason of their function, their characteristics and many application circuits; the book is also intended to describe what the transistors are and shed some light on their most popular applications.
Moreover, the readers will know how to polarizate the transistors, and some other operations. They will get the necessary information on what the operational amplifiers, power amplifiers and oscillator circuits are. The book includes so many problems and illustrations for better understanding of the material...
The publication presents a professional feasibility study of the proposed technical solutions for the on-shore electrical infrastructure to supply ships with the electrical power during their staying at ports. The vessels utilize their diesel engines in order to produce the electricity they require for the loading/discharging activities, hoteling and other needs while in ports.
Main shipboard engines are commonly switched off straight after the vessel gets berthed. Nowadays, the auxiliary engines installed on board run on the cheap low quality fuel, and their operation results in the negative impact on the environment. There are several marine ports applying the shore-side electrical power supply in the port infrastructure and the environment of those parts have significantly improved during past years.
The other ports have subsequently started investigation in this field analyzing the possibilities of arranging the shore-side supply. When preparing a technical design, the first thing to be investigated is the shipboard electrical system. The study contained in this report has shows how the electrical power needs vary depending on the type of ship, ranging from one to eleven megawatts. The ports shall be duly aware of the ship power needs, system voltage and frequency in order to properly design the supply facility...
This is the third edition of the popular Code of Practice dealing with the established procedures and techniques for the routine inspection and periodical in-service testing of the electrical equipment. The main goal of the document is to provide valuable advice and instruction on the inspection and testing in order to determine if the electrical equipment can be considered fit for service or there is necessity for the maintenance/replacement.
This edition of the Code features clarification of the equipment covered in its pages, and additional explanations of the terminology involved. The authors have also covered some of the alternative methods of testing. Moreover, the publication provides some additional explanation on the test leads and RCD adaptors as well as on the extension leads. The text is supplemented with the newly introduced appendices containing numerous images illustrating normally encountered deficiencies.
Regularly conducted inspection of the electrical equipment and installations is considered a fundamental part of the preventive maintenance program. Records of the routine maintenance and test results shall be maintained throughout the whole working cycle of the equipment, this is required to enable the condition of the equipment, effectiveness of the periodical maintenance policy for the assessment, and to show that the maintenance system is in place and effective.
Have a look into this nice and fully revised guidebook which is a real must-have one for the people engaged in troubleshooting and repair of any electronic equipment. They will find here all technical information, instructions and practical tips required to perform the repair of any kind of the electrical equipment. The content of this second edition of the guide has been significantly reworked.
