Within the marine and offshore industry, there is a clear and growing need for increased training and education on the use of electrical power systems. The number of electrical plant and appliances now in service has grown at an alarming rate in recent years, as has the amount of electrical power generated and utilised on board.
This book's objective is to help marine and electrical engineers acquire the knowledge required by STCW for management and operational level endorsements and to become more familiar with various electrical applications that can be found on board ship.
The MNTB has produced the Electro-Technical Officer Competency Record (ETO CR) so that seafarers can demonstrate the sea time competence requirements as part of the MCA Electro-Technical Certificate of Competency.
This book is intended to be a reference guide for those engineers and students engaged in the design and operation of ship electric energy systems especially considering its predominant role in efficiency, emissions and fuel consumption.
