THE SAN DIEGO CLASS TANKER-EVOLUTION OF A MODERN SHIP'S POWER PLANT

The paper introduces the ship and her ancestors to the reader and proceeds with a description of the machinery plant development which led to the installed equipment. The control room and the evaluation of centralized controls are then discussed. In addition, some aspects of further developments in the ship and machinery plant are briefly touched. Only those control functions and system philosophies not regularly seen aboard U.S. flag vessels are described in this paper in further detail. Finally, a brief approach to the control aspects of the near future are described in the section concerning the computer controls for the eighties.
