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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
An excellent textbook providing readers with the introduction to electrical engineering. The book starts with the chapter on direct current circuits covering the structure of matter and concept of charge, EMF and current, charge-current relation, resistance, resistivity and conductivity, RTC, electrical networks, their classification and relevant terminology, sources of energy, open and short circuits, Ohm's Law, voltage and current division in series/parallel circuits of resistors, Kirchhoff's Laws and Cramer's Rule, loop current concept, delta and star connections etc.
In short, the other chapters of the textbook are dealing with the electrostatics and capacitance including relevant laws, electric flux, permittivity, capacitance, potential gradient etc., electromagnetics covering magnet and its properties, magnetic field, magnetic flux, permeability, reluctance, MMF, permeance and magnetic circuits etc., fundamentals of alternate current circuits, their advantages and types of alternate current waveforms, single phase and three phase circuits.
There are also chapters devoted to the batteries and cables addressing types of cells and terminology used, capacity and efficiency of the batteries, their charging etc., electrical wiring including requirements and procedures for installation and testing, illumination, protective devices, necessary safety precautions to be in place, and other information.
The publication is dealing with the design methodology of the electric drives. The book starts with the explanation of what electric drive is. In fact, it is a system converting electric energy into mechanical energy by means of the electric motor and peripherals that are required for transmission, supply and control of the energy.
The design concept of such system is characteristic of the drive. And, as it is a case with any other system and equipment, the overall quality of it is commonly evaluated on the basis of the weakest component. The electric drives shall always be duly adapted to the intended application.
The present volume covers the driven bodies and transmission including their types and characteristics, resolution and speed adaptation etc., electric motors and their characterization including parametric expression and scaling laws, global design of the electric drives, electrical and electronic peripheral items, sensors of various types, current and protection sensors, direct and integrated drives including their working principle and realization. In short, the publication provides all necessary information on the design of electric drives that will be needful in the industry.
