THE CONTROLS AND INSTRUMENTATION OF A SLOW SPEED DIESEL PROPULSION PLANT
This paper introduces the ship to the reader and proceeds with a description of the machinery plant. The control room and the console arrangement are then discussed, together with a brief approach to some of the aspects concerning zero-man-watch control. In the chapter about controls, only those control functions and system philosophies not regularly seen aboard US flag vessels and which are imperative to the proper operation of a slow speed diesel propulsion unit are then described in this paper in further detail.
