A new edition has been published of 'Reeds Vol 6: Basic Electrotechnology for Marine Engineers', by Dr Chris Lavers.

The book provides comprehensive coverage of the basic theoretical work required by Marine Engineering Officers and Electrotechnical Officers (ETOs), putting into place key fundamental building blocks and topics in Electrotechnology before progressing to more complex topics and electromagnetic systems relevant to both civilian and military users.

Volume 6 covers essential basic Electrotechnology principles for the 21st Century, including the fundamentals of electron theory, AC and DC current, circuits, electromagnetism and electrochemistry, providing a firm foundation for complementary Volume 7 in the Marine Engineering Series to discuss emergent technology such as image intensifiers, the transistor, increased maritime use of LEDs, and references to modern ship navigation-related sensor systems such as GPS, ECDIS, Radar and AIS.

The new edition has been thoroughly updated in line with guidelines, best practice and the many technological developments that have taken place over the past five years since the previous edition was published, as well as improvements and updates to the technical diagrams.
