PROPULSION SYSTEM DESIGN FOR THE MULTI-MISSION PATROL SHIP MART 1/1A

PSMM Mk1/1A is a high-speed patrol ship designed to accomplish a variety of missions. The propulsion system is controlled by a pair of analog computers which automatically select shaft rpm and propellers pitch based on power command and the number of turbines operating. This paper discusses the propulsion system and controls as designed, the modifications made during trials of the Mk1 in late 1974, and the improvements made in the Mk 1A and proved during trials in 1977.
