Derived from the author's 30 years of experience in industry and academia, this book covers modern shipboard propulsion and the power electronics and ocean energy technologies driving it. Divided into three parts, this book first focuses on power electronics and motor drives, examining variable frequency drives based on power electronics converters. Then it addresses electric propulsion of ships, discussing the superconducting motor developed by the U.S. Navy. The final section explores emerging ocean power technologies.
