The current trends in shipbuilding and ship operation towards higher propulsion power and increased automation have placed new demands on steam turbine controls and valve operating gear. This article describes a completely new electro-hydraulic throttle control system, designed by the General Electric Company. It is a system in which all of the control elements from the throttle levers at the engine room and bridge consoles to the inlet valves on the turbines form a single, integrated system supplied with the turbine and gear unit. Descriptions of the four major elements of the hydraulic system, as well as the hydraulic system itself, and control functions and the remote control panels of the complete system, are all included in the article.
