A FLUIDIC STARTING AND SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM FOR DIESEL GENERATORS

The paper describes a new design for a Diesel generator automatic starting and protection system that uses fluidics for the logic. Its function is to operate and check various quantities, then start the engine after first priming it with oil. When the engine is running, various parameters are sensed and should any reach pre-set limits, a warning and then an alarm is indicated. An alarm condition automatically shuts down the set. The first three pre-production systems are fitted in H.M.S. Bristol for evaluation at sea under service conditions.
