Propulsion and Electric Power Generation Systems


Propulsion and Electric Power Generation Systems

A new book Design of Propulsion and Electric Power Generation Systems has been published by The Institute of Marine Engineering Science and Technology. This book (authored by Hans Klein Woud and Douwe Stapersma) gives an overview of the main components of the propulsion and electric power plant and their power requirements. Based on a fundamental understanding of all types of energy conversion, the present and future architecture of power plants on board ships is then presented.

After an overview of the main equipment such as prime movers, transmission equipment, electrical equipment and propulsors the book offers more in depth analysis of the diesel engine, gas turbine, electric machinery, power electronics and propellers. Matching the propulsion engine to the propeller and the calculation of ship fuel consumption and exhaust emissions conclude this essential volume for marine engineering students, lecturers and practising professionals.
