GENERAL ELECTRIC INTEGRATED TURBINE CONTROL AS APPLIED TO THE SAN DIEGO CLASS TANKERS

A brief historical review of marine turbine controls is presented to establish the background for the development of the General Electric Integrated Turbine Control, hereafter referred to as the ITC. This control was designed by the Marine Turbine Engineering Group, Lynn, Ma. The ITC system components include a hydraulics assembly, electronics console, manual hydraulic pump and control panels. This hardware is described and the system operating modes and control features are explained. Bridge and engine room control panel designs vary considerably and are individually defined by working with the shipyard and shipowner. One of the most recent designs, the NASSCO San Diego Class tanker control panel, is described.
