Troubleshooting Marine Switchgears and Controls
This publication provides detailed practical information on electrical systems associated with marine starter safety and control circuits. It explains and illustrates the elements of marine switchgear starters, how to take electrical measurements and the principles of direct on line (DOL) and star-delta (wye-delta) motor starters.
This publication examines the basic elements and controls that are incorporated into motor starter circuitry. It describes circuit measurement, electrical fault-finding techniques and the equipment used by marine engineers. It also looks at motor starter applications, types of marine motors and troubleshooting techniques. The text is extensively illustrated with component and circuit diagrams.
This publication should be used to enhance and supplement your knowledge and skills. It will provide familiarisation with a variety of electrical appliances that are part of, or associated with, marine starter safety and control circuits.
Interactive circuit simulations are available in the eBook version of this publication.
Ships have become increasingly automated, which has highlighted the inadequacies of existing education and training. Problems encountered with the application of automated systems, and the failures of automation and associated processor-based motor starters, are factors that will undoubtedly contribute to future marine accidents.
It is essential that marine engineers and ETOs have a good understanding of automated systems to maintain them in an efficient and safe operational condition.
This training package should be used to enhance and supplement your knowledge and skills. It will provide familiarisation with a variety of electrical appliances that are part of, or associated with, modern marine starter safety and control circuits.
This training package is appropriate for:
- Management level marine engineers
- operational level marine engineers
- electricians with a lack of experience
- engineering cadets
- electrical engineering cadets
- anyone who is starting to work with switchgear starters.
