Marine Engineering Series: Marine Electrical Practice, Sixth Edition focuses on changes in the marine industry, including the application of programmable electronic systems, generators, and motors. The publication first ponders on insulation and temperature ratings of equipment, protection and discrimination, and AC generators. Discussions focus on construction, shaft-drive generators, effect of unbalanced loading, subtransient and transient reactance, protection discrimination, fault current, measurement of ambient air temperature, and basis of machine ratings. The text then examines AC switchgear, automatic voltage regulators, DC generators, and DC switchgear. Topics cover switchgear for parallel-operated generators, protection against short-circuit, field regulators and the effect of tropical temperatures, compound-wound generators, power generators, loading sharing, voltage comparison circuit, and amplifier and condition circuit. The manuscript surveys electric cables, motors, motor control gear, semiconductors, storage batteries, and battery control gear. Concerns include calculations to determine the size of battery required, types of storage batteries, rectifiers, tunnel diodes, maintenance of control gear, overload protection, insulation, sheathing, and flexible cords and cables. The publication is a dependable reference for marine engineers and researchers interested in marine engineering.

Introduction to Marine Engineering explains the operation of all the ship's machinery, with emphasis on correct, safe operating procedures and practices at all times. Organized into 17 chapters, this book begins with an overall look at the ship. Subsequent chapters describe the various ship machineries, including diesel engines, steam turbines, boilers, feed systems, pumps, auxiliaries, deck machinery, hull equipment, shafting, propellers, steering gear, and electrical equipment. Other aspects of marine engineering, particularly, fuel oils, lubricating oils, refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation, firefighting and safety, watchkeeping, and equipment operation, are also described. This book will be useful to anyone with an interest in ships' machinery or a professional involvement in the shipping business.

Marine Auxiliary Machine: Sixth Edition explains the correct operation and maintenance of marine auxiliary machinery. The book discusses topics such as the arrangements of the engine and boiler room; pipes and fittings and pumps; compressors and separators; and heat exchangers - its types, control of temperature, and maintenance. The book also talks about other machineries such as diesel engines, steam turbines, propellers, and gears; refrigeration and air conditioning systems; deck machinery; and safety equipment. The text is recommended for engineers in ships who would like to know more about the auxiliary machines onboard ships, how they are operated, and the principles behind them.

Since its first appearance in 1950, Pounder's Marine Diesel Engines has served seagoing engineers, students of the Certificates of Competency examinations and the marine engineering industry throughout the world. Each new edition has noted the changes in engine design and the influence of new technology and economic needs on the marine diesel engine. Now in its ninth edition, Pounder's retains the directness of approach and attention to essential detail that characterized its predecessors. There are new chapters on monitoring control and HiMSEN engines as well as information on developments in electronic-controlled fuel injection. It is fully updated to cover new legislation including that on emissions and provides details on enhancing overall efficiency and cutting CO2 emissions. After experience as a seagoing engineer with the British India Steam Navigation Company, Doug Woodyard held editorial positions with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institute of Marine Engineers. He subsequently edited The Motor Ship journal for eight years before becoming a freelance editor specializing in shipping, shipbuilding and marine engineering. He is currently technical editor of Marine Propulsion and Auxiliary Machinery, a contributing editor to Speed at Sea, Shipping World and Shipbuilder and a technical press consultant to Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine. * Helps engineers to understand the latest changes to marine diesel engineers * Careful organisation of the new edition enables readers to access the information they require * Brand new chapters focus on monitoring control systems and HiMSEN engines. * Over 270 high quality, clearly labelled illustrations and figures to aid understanding and help engineers quickly identify what they need to know.

Updated with the 2000 rules, the Fourth Edition provides shipyard electricians and electrical designers with the step-by-step instruction they need to design and install electrical systems on marine installations, whether shipboard or offshore. Written for novices, this workbook offers three modules of skill level: Fundamentals, Intermediate, and Advanced. Within each module, the author provides five lessons filled with detailed outlines, diagrams, charts, formulas, examples, solutions, blank worksheets, and study guides for increased understanding. Suitable for use as either a course text or as a self-help guide, this workbook examines current rules and regulations of the American Bureau of Shipping, United States Coast Guard, National Electronic Code, and Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers 45. Using this information, readers will acquire a basic knowledge of task requirements, including basic ship construction as well as power-and-lighting-system building and installation. Featuring the editorial revisions of the "ABS Rules for Building and Classing Steel Vessels," this edition addresses changes made to the American Bureau of Shipping's (ABS) rules, including the re-numbering and re-organization of all section numbers. For ease-of-reference, the author includes a chart of both the new ABS rules and the old ABS rules used throughout the workbook.
