A MATHEMATICAL MODEL OF A MAIN BOILER FOR 60,000 KW CONTAINER SHIP
The paper describes how mathematical models of dynamic characteristics were formulated for one of two main boilers installed in SS "KAMAKURA MARU" an 80,000 hp high speed container ship, analysed by computer simulation technique and checked against the results of actual measurements made in October 1971 before the ship was handed over to the owner in November. The discrete-space continuous-time finite difference method was used and the water circulation loops, i.e. furnace waterwalls, downcomers etc. were divided into eleven space lumps and, similarly, the superheater and control desuperheater were divided into eight and two space lumps respectively. The mathematical models feature the use of non-linear equations to analyze the boiler dynamic responses to drastic load change peculiar to the ship's boilers, and were found highly practical for use in the analysis of dynamics of large capacity boilers.
