Abstract:

Summary. A review is made of certain problems involved in the planning of modern ships electric plants and the individual units of the circuits in the principal distributing installations are described. Specific attention is diverted to the questions of the calculation and selection of the power of subassemblies at the electric plants analyses are made of the operating conditions of individual ship power users and of electric plants on various types of vessels. The author analyzes the tabular method of calculation now in use and he discusses a method for estimating the power of vessel electric plants developed on the basis of experimental and statistical material, including the application of elements from the theory of probability and of mathematical statistics.
