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.

At the first glance, the audience for this volume may look same as the audience for the broad-based textbooks on electrical engineering; however, it shall be noted that the content of the present publication differs in its structure, length and, what is most important, in its emphasis.

The traditional books mainly cover electrical circuits together with the electronics and then proceed to the electrical machinery, but the author of this volume believes that it would be much more important for the students of today to get information about the digital technology, even more important than the traditional electrical machinery.

The book is aimed at those students who require to get better understanding of the modern electronics as well as of the communication. The emphasis has been made by the author on the practical application and on the fundamental principles. There are three main parts in the book, and they are dealing with the electrical circuits, electronics, and communications.

Since electronics is commonly treated as the combination of R, L, C elements and active elements, the author made a decision to begin his work with a study of electrical circuits. In short, this is one of the best books on electronics and communications available on the market and it is highly recommended to the students and specialists.
