This book provides a comprehensive coverage of the basic theoretical work required by marine
engineering officers and electrotechnical officers (ETOs), putting into place key fundamental building blocks and topics in electrotechnology before progressing to more complex topics and electromagnetic systems.
Revisions will include important new material on emergent technology such as image intensifiers, the increased maritime use of LEDs, examples of ship systems including power distribution systems, and references to modern ship systems, eg. GPS, ECDIS, Radar, AIS, Comms outfits, etc.
This essential text offers a truly rigorous approach to the key topic of electrotechnology.
Christopher Lavers is a Lecturer in Marine Engineering, and has taught Maritime and Remote Sensing topics at the University of Plymouth at Britannia Royal Naval College since 1993. He is Subject Matter Expert (Radar and Telecommunications) at Britannia Royal Naval College, Plymouth University, UK.
