Shipboard Power Systems Design and Verification Fundamentals
Shipboard Electrical system design and development requirements are fundamentally different from the Utility based power generation and distribution requirements. Electrical engineers who are engaged in shipbuilding must understand various design elements to build safe and energy efficient power distribution systems as well as understanding the national and international design rules and regulations. This book covers all the relevant regulations in building shipboard which include commercial ships, naval ships and offshore floating platforms. In recent years, offshore floating platforms are frequently discussed in exploring deep water resources such as oil, gas and wind energy. This book presents step-by-step shipboard electrical system design and verification fundamentals providing the information of individual electrical devices and practical design examples with ample supporting drawings.
