9781330104866: Electric Lighting for Marine Engineers (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Electric Lighting for Marine Engineers

IN the accompanying pages, the Author has endeavoured to unite the experience gained during eight years of actual sea-going work, with that acquired in electrical work during the eighteen years that have elapsed since he left the sea; and to present in a simple and concise form all that it is necessary for marine engineers to know of the construction and management of electric light apparatus, to enable them to deal with any difficulties that may arise in connection with the apparatus under their charge.

In the whole of the matter here written, the Author has had forcibly present in his mind those scenes he took part in during the time he was at sea, - the working 'and straining of every part of a ship in a heavy sea way, the facility with which sea-water and briny vapour penetrate to every part of a ship, the constant vibration of every part of her when the main engines are at work, and in the advice he has given; he has had always before him the first requirement of every apparatus for use on board ship, viz. That it must work under all conditions and be easy of repair, rather than present a very high so-called efficiency.
