Ship’s Electrical Systems is the newest release from Dutch publisher Dokmar.
This book is intended for professionals and those with a good knowledge of the basics of electrical installations, but due to the quality of the writing and accompanying illustrations it is also accessible to those who are not in the industry.
The subjects covered includes all aspects of system design and installation: calculating power needs, initial drawings and equipment selection. Special electrical needs for specific types of vessels are also covered, including mega-yachts, dynamically-positioned (DP) ships, drilling rigs and dredges.
For those that are not familiar with this publisher, all Dokmar books are in a class by themselves when it comes to professional texts. The layout is clear and sensible, the writing is concise and to the point, and the accompanying illustrations and photos are useful, informative and full colour!
