Not long ago, the ships propelled with steam turbines were replaced with IC engines
and now it’s time to say good bye to ships propelled with IC engines. On the roads, the
electric cars are already coming in big way and it is said that in next 10 years’ time, production
of conventional gas driven cars will stop. This may also become true for the
marine world. We may soon see the advent of electric propulsion of ships and the replacement
of the conventional IC engines. The power generators will also be replaced with
CNG driven turbo alternators.
This course is designed to prepare the Marine Engineer to face the challenges of
modern vessels fitted electrical propulsion systems or POD propulsion systems using
variable frequency drives.
