    Features

    • Compiles, in a single resource, important information on all relevant topics required for power engineers
    • Presents in-depth coverage of batteries, which are essential in all practical power systems but not usually sufficiently covered in traditional books
    • Explains difficult electrical concepts using mechanical and hydraulic analogies that are easily relatable for marine engineers
    • Offers a cursory introduction to marine industry standards
    • Uses long, visible suffixes in equations, which are easier to understand and remember than the one-letter symbols used in most books
    • Includes numerous examples, practice problems, and concept questions
    • Suggests further reading at the end of each chapter

     

    Shipboard Electrical Power Systems addresses new developments in this growing field. Focused on the trend toward electrification to power commercial shipping, naval, and passenger vessels, this book helps new or experienced engineers master cutting-edge methods for power system design, control, protection, and economic use of power.

    Provides Basic Transferable Skills for Managing Electrical Power on Ships or on Land

    This groundbreaking book is the first volume of its kind to illustrate optimization of all aspects of shipboard electrical power systems. Applying author Mukund Patel’s rare combination of industrial and educational work experiences and insight, it offers solutions to meet the increasing demand for large, fast, efficient, and reconfigurable ships to compete in international markets.

    For 30 years, Professor Patel was an engineer for companies including General Electric, Lockheed Martin, and Westinghouse Electric, and in the past 15 years he has been an engineering professor at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. That varied experience helped him zero in on the specialized multidimensional knowledge an engineer requires—and that is what sets his book apart.

    Compiles Critical, Hard-to-Find Information on Power System Design, Analysis, and Operation

    The global shortage of power engineers is not deterring countries from heavily investing in construction of new power plants and grids. Consequent growth in university electrical power programs is satisfying the demand for engineers, but novice graduates require accelerated understanding and practical experience before entering the thriving maritime segment.

    Ideal for readers with limited electrical experience, wide-ranging coverage includes power system basics, power generation, electrical machines, power distribution, batteries, and marine industry standards. This book is an invaluable tool for engineers working on ships, as well as in ports, industrial power plants, refineries, and other similar environments.

    Ship Electric Energy Systems: Design & Operations Principles

    £25.00
    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.

    Marine Electrical Generation - Steam and Power Turbines

    £16.50
    This book describes two types of turbine which are utilised to drive a generator in various recovery systems – firstly the well-established combination of a steam turbine which runs on steam produced by a recovery boiler which extracts heat from the engine exhaust gases; the other type is termed a ‘power turbine’ and is operated by main-engine exhaust gas which is surplus to that required for the turbo-chargers.

    Reeds Vol 09: Steam Engineering Knowledge

    £40.00
    This book is a companion to Volume 8 - General Engineering Knowledge".
