Marine Electrical Basics Workbook
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.
