COMPREHENSIVE AUTOMATIC CONTROL SYSTEM FOR SOVIET HYDROFOIL CRAFT TAIFUN

Taifun, the 66 tonne displacement Soviet hydrofoil craft with fully submerged foils, features a comprehensive automatic system for propulsion control. Topping 45 knots in a force 3 sea and 40-41 knots in a force 4 sea, the hydrofoil will cruise in either calm water or force 4 wave conditions at 38 knots, giving a high level of passenger comfort. The entire range of automatic control functions (data assembly and evaluation, including control decisions) is accomplished in accordance with preselected programmes. Crew functions are process supervisions, process data analysis and selection of operating modes for automatic equipment. Control fuctions are illustrated.
