Department of Marine Engineering

Academic Program

Master in Marine Engineering







The main objective of the course is to give the students an introduction to electro-technical engineering and an understanding of marine electric power systems on ships and platforms, which is of importance for management, engineering, design, and analysis.Introduction to electric analysis techniques, with basis on electro-technical concepts, laws, and properties for electric systems, such as circuit analysis, electric power, 1-phase and 3-phase systems, phasor diagrams, electro-magnetic energy conversion, and physical principles of transformers and electric machinery. Electric machines, motors, and propulsion drives, electric power generation and distribution, power management systems (PMS), operational issues, and class rules and methods for independent testing and verification. Marine emergency power systems, power quality requirements, shore connections in ports, distribution components and network protection emergency supplies, simultaneous faults. Load flow and fault analysis.
