Electricity plays an increasing role on board yachts. Modern navigation and communication equipment depends on it, as well as the growing list of household appliances that are taken on board.
This is the concept for a booklet about electricity on board small and large yachts. The intention of the book is twofold:
Firstly I try to cover in depth a few matters that over and again are subject to discussion and misunderstanding, such as batteries and management of batteries, or electric power consumption of refrigerators, freezers and air conditioning.
My second intention is to help designers, electricians and boat owners to decide on how to manage and generate electricity on board. Several new products and concepts have substantially broadened the range of alternatives here.
Together with some unavoidable theory, I use examples of small and large yachts to clarify the consequences of choosing one alternative or another, The consequences are sometimes so unexpected and far reaching that, writing it all down, I have also helped my own understanding.
