A MICROCOMPUTER BASED DIESEL ENGINE SIMULATOR FOR ADVANCED SHIP PROPULSION MONITORING AND CONTROL SYSTEMS

The increasing use of on-board computers will make the utilization of sophisticated engine simulation models within integrated computerized ship propulsion plant management systems possible. These models can be used to provide reference performance data for advanced control, performance optimisation, fault diagnosis, and predictive maintenance systems. This paper briefly describes the structure of advanced engine performance prediction models, commenting on the areas that require further development in view of the above applications. An engine simulation model originally developed on a mainframe computer was adapted to run on a microcomputer. Selected results are presented, using the model to predict the performance of a large slow-speed marine diesel engine, simulating various typical fault conditions.
