NUMERICAL AUTOMATION OF THE STEAM CYCLE IN SHIPS: DECENTRALIZED AND HIERARCHICAL APPROACH

A new control system for the steam cycle of ships is described. This system is composed of a mini-computer and micro-computers in which multi-level control laws are implemented. To attain this objective, a three-directional research approach was employed: process modelling and identification, control algorithms, and computer design. The work completed and in progress is not purely theoretical, but also includes laboratory simulation and trials on large ships. Order from BSRA as No. 54,910.
