page is dedicated for discussing and answering of problem related to marine
electrical, electronics and controls devices and circuits, their trouble shooting.
Also, the theory related to them which are essential for the electrical officer
and marine engineer officer on ship. Also, students who are appearing for their
exam will find this page quite useful. So, post any question you have, let the
visitors of this site to answer them.
transport vessels and stationary setup in sea water have huge electrical network.
Power requirement out there at sea, is same as on land. Plus, the devices, and circuits
that are used onboard are designed to withstand rough conditions. Since
people out there don’t have quick assistance as they would have on land,
engineer out there need to have knowledge of electrical machineries.
is generated by using the electrical generators, either by using IC engine or gas
and steam turbines.
