CONTROL SYSTEMS: AVAILABILITY, MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR
Modern ships are equipped with control systems of various kinds, ranging from relatively simple systems such as automatic pilot devices to complex equipment such as automatic bridge control systems for remote control of the main engine. Because of this increasing use of automation, the reliability of the control and monitoring systems must be adequate to protect the controlled machinery against all possible disturbances with availability reaching as high a degree as possible. This paper deals with the various methods of achieving higher standards of reliability and availability. Factors of interference which may affect availability of a system are listed and recommendations are made for improving systems maintenance and repair. Order from BSRA as No. 52,497.
