Offshore Electrical Engineering Manual Book Description :

Offshore Electrical Engineering Manual, Second Edition, is for electrical engineers working on offshore projects who require detailed knowledge of an array of equipment and power distribution systems. The book begins with coverage of different types of insulation, hot-spot temperatures, temperature rise, ambient air temperatures, basis of machine ratings, method of measurement of temperature rise by resistance, measurement of ambient air temperature. This is followed by coverage of AC generators, automatic voltage regulators, AC switchgear transformers, and programmable electronic systems. The emphasis throughout is on practical, ready-to-apply techniques that yield immediate and cost-effective benefits. The majority of the systems covered in the book operate at a nominal voltage of 24 y dc and, although it is not necessary for each of the systems to have separate battery and battery charger systems, the grouping criteria require more detailed discussion. The book also provides information on equipment such as dual chargers and batteries for certain vital systems, switchgear tripping/closing, and engine start batteries which are dedicated to the equipment they supply. In the case of engines which drive fire pumps, duplicate charges and batteries are also required. Packed with charts, tables, and diagrams, this work is intended to be of interest to both technical readers and to general readers. It covers electrical engineering in offshore situations, with much of the information gained in the North Sea. Some topics covered are offshore power requirements, generator selection, process drivers and starting requirements, control and monitoring systems, and cabling and equipment installation Discusses how to perform inspections of electrical and instrument systems on equipment using appropriate regulations and specifications Explains how to ensure electrical systems/components are maintained and production is uninterrupted Demonstrates how to repair, modify, and install

The Manual for Soul Fishing Book Description :

The Manual for Soul Fishing Follow me and I will make you a fisherman of men." Matthew 4:19 I heard God's quiet, still voice. Why was God telling me this? I have been following Him a long time. People often ask if God still speaks to His people today? Absolutely! I will answer that with a resounding yes. There is no physical place I have to be in to hear God's voice. I can be in my car, in my bed, or even in the shower. Sometimes even when my spirit is in a low place, God speaks words of love and encouragement. On April 16, 2019 I was sitting on a plane far from home. I was thanking God for allowing me to be the vessel used to preach salvation to so many people in India. As I was reflecting on all that had happened there, God spoke the words from Matthew 4:18-20 to me. I began to pray and seek Him right there on the plane. I soon came to realize that He wanted me to show others how to actively search for lost souls. It was no longer enough for me to win souls, but He wanted me to share with others His formula. God uses His people to do His fishing. God showed me myself in a vision writing a manual on fishing for souls. Sitting on that plane, I was convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that God was giving me an urgent assignment. The press was such that I knew the manual had to be published in the same year that God gave me the vision. As you read it, read it with an open mind and an open spirit as we explore being fishers of men. In this manual I want the readers to learn the techniques of fishing, the when, what, how, and where. In 2019 there are many empty seats in our churches. Why? We as Christians, have been trying to fill up our churches with people from other churches and not with the lost souls in the world. After reading this manual, I want you to be able to grow church membership, Bible Study attendance, and I want your very life to be transformed.

Undersea Vehicles and National Needs Book Description :

The United States faces decisions requiring information about the oceans in vastly expanded scales of time and space and from oceanic sectors not accessible with the suite of tools now used by scientists and engineers. Advances in guidance and control, communications, sensors, and other technologies for undersea vehicles can provide an opportunity to understand the oceans' influence on the energy and chemical balance that sustains humankind and to manage and deliver resources from and beneath the sea. This book assesses the state of undersea vehicle technology and opportunities for vehicle applications in science and industry. It provides guidance about vehicle subsystem development priorities and describes how national research can be focused most effectively.
