One of the best electrical engineering publications available today. The publication features impressive coverage of all important terminology as well as definitions and acronyms. This is the second edition of the dictionary and the author has made all necessary amendments to the original publication in order to make the dictionary better. His efforts have eventually resulted in a true bestseller reflecting all recent advances in electrical engineering and associated disciplines.
The lexicon of the dictionary includes more that thousand and half additional entries bringing a total number of entries to eleven thousands. The content of the dictionary has been developed n the basis of the invaluable contributions by the world leading experts. ore that a hundred of informative illustrations and data tables accompany the main content. The newly included areas cover the hybrid vehicles and mechatronics, data storage and embedded systems and sensors, process control and related instrumentation etc.
One of the reasons for the revision was to include many of the completely new terms of computer electronics, fuel cells and others. This fully up-to-date reference source embracing the whole electrical engineering and device electronics, digital systems and control/power systems will be equally interesting to the students and practitioners and is therefore recommended to all groups of users.
The Electrical Engineering Dictionary by Philip Laplante is the must-have book that provides the practicing electrical engineering professionals as well as the people only studying the electrical engineering disciplines, with so many workable definitions. It may and will for sure be a good research and reference source since it offers practical info for both industry researchers and scientists in other related disciplines.
The dictionary provides users with a remarkably comprehensive coverage of the important acronyms, terms and technical definitions related to the electrical engineering field, more than eleven thousand in total. There are several new areas that have been covered in this second release of the dictionary, compared to the first edition - process control and instrumentation and mechatronics, data storage, embedded sensors and systems, and others. There are so many new technical terms and abbreviations that have been included in this new edition of the dictionary to fully reflect the rapid growth in computer electronics and other relating engineering fields.
Believe it is absolutely needless to say that the present dictionary must be treated as the perfect reference for any person involved in electrical engineering activities, including technical design and construction of the electrical equipment/systems, their installation and operation, and any sort of maintenance and repair.
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...
The book that we are now presenting to your attention has been specifically prepared by author, John R. Brand, for the industry engineers, as well as commercial operators, electricians, and even students and enthusiasts, i.e. for literally any person having some minimum knowledge of electrical terminology and some theory, and the declared ultimate intention was to provide them all with a comprehensive but compact and easy-to-use reference book containing all relevant technical info that they might require in their day-to-day activities or study, including schematic diagrams, approximations, symbols and formulas, all definitions required for today's active/passive analog circuit technology.
The way materials have been arranged in this publication allows readers to easily locate any desired formula without making it necessary to use the index. The publication contains sufficient technical information, approximations and schematic diagrams, various alternate methods and footnotes arranged in a very easy-to-use manner. The handbook will definitely be very useful to electrical engineers and future professionals since it could be used as a reference book, for the classroom training or for the self-study. All formulas that have been provided in this volume use only the basic units and are listed alphabetically.
The present book was specifically prepared for students, practitioners and researchers in the fields of control engineering and marine technology. Taking into account that the audience would be fairly mixed, so much effort has been made by the author to set the proper level of the topic presentation.
Nevertheless, the readers of this book are required to have at least some basic knowledge in linear systems/state space models, say within the limits of one provided at the standard undergraduate control courses. The publication contains four major sections; the first three of them are dealing with the key components of a successful vessel motion control system, namely appropriate math models, proper understanding of the performance assessment, and knowledge of the basic limitations that may possibly affect the desired performance in a negative way. The last part of the book addresses the design of control systems.
Among the topics that have been included in the book there are ship dynamics, wave simulation and modeling, vessel motion performance, wave filtering, design of the control system for auto-pilots and for integrated rudder-fin stabilizer, roll stabilization devices, various models of actuators etc. The book will be useful to practicing marine engineers as well as the academic persons involved in the related research activities.
This publication should be treated as a must have one for all ship electricians and marine engineers working on board contemporary ships. Prepared by the professional electrical superintendent, it will provide you with the perfect technical overview of virtually all electrical components together with the systems that are normally incorporated in the ships of today.
The material is arranged in several major chapters, each of which concentrates on some particular topics; note that, apart from the text and theoretical knowledge, the book is full of the practical examples and informative drawings and illustrations to ease the understanding.
The volume is an excellent reference guide for the shipboard engineers and will be very useful as an instructional resource. In fact, it is an invaluable one for the marine engineers and ETOs who are willing to improve both their theoretical and practical knowledge of the subject.
The contents of the book cover everything starting from the reading electrical diagrams and then proceeding to the control elements, relays including all types of them, motor starters, switches, protection and monitoring arrangements, motors, breakers, HV systems commonly found on board large modern vessels, sensors, PLCs, and so many others.
