The control systems described in this paper apply to typical present-day marine steam turbines and water tube boilers, but similar techniques can also be applied to other marine plants such as gas turbines, diesel engines, cargo pumps, refrigeration plant, etc. The paper describes electronic equipment design suitable for the marine environment, followed by considerations of safety when designing electronic control systems. Finally, the paper investigates some of the problems of tuning control systems, and ends with a discussion of possible future trends in marine automation.
