AN INTEGRATED ELECTRIC GENERATING PLANT WITH A THYRISTOR-CONTROLLED ELECTRIC PROPULSION DRIVE

The "integrated electric power plant" (IEPP) with a thyristor- controlled electric propulsion drive that was installed aboard the Soviet automobile-passenger ferry VOKHILAYD, built in 1984, is described. The diesel electric ship has an extreme length of 49.7m and a beam of 12.8m. Its power plant made it possible to meet the following specific requirements: reliable specified ice performance; compact equipment arrangement; economical use of generator sets in all operating modes; and improved reliability and ease of plant control with a reduced crew in an environment where maneuvering accounts for up to 40% of service time. It is stated that the IEPP described, which was designed by specialists in Leningrad, has resulted in annual savings on one ship alone of about 100,000 rubles.
