DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF A PRESSURE-FIRED STEAM GENERATOR CONTROL SYSTEM TRAINING SIMULATOR

A simulator for training of enlisted naval personnel in operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting of combustion and feedwater control systems for pressure-fired boilers was developed and constructed. The system design was based on a mathematical model of a two-boiler shipboard steam generating plant and was assembled using analog pneumatic computing components almost exclusively. The simulator is equipped with features designed to enhance realism and to promote "hands on" type training. The principles underlying the simulation of the more important dynamic elements of the plant are outlined, and some of the problems encountered in their implementation with pneumatic hardware are described.
