REPORT ON INTEGRATED STEAM POWER PLANT, PHASE 1, PART 2. PRELIMINARY PLANT DESIGN STUDY AND COMPONENT SELECTION

Only the major components in the plant were reviewed and only the auxiliary equipment which may influence the selection of the major components was discussed. Specifically, these are: (a) main boilers, (b) steam turbines with astern elements, (c) steam turbines without astern elements, (d) reduction gears, (e) reverse reduction gears, (f) controllable reversible pitch propellers, (g) ship's service and emergency generator, (h) auxiliary boilers, (i) emergency propulsion. The study considered various kinds of main steam plant components and combined them into the minimum number of plant designs. Components most suitable for the integrated plant are discussed.
