AN EVALUATION OF SIMPLIFIED PROPULSION CONTROLS FOR GAS TURBINE POWERED NAVAL SHIPS
The results of an investigation to determine whether a simplification of the propulsion control system can be achieved by a combination of the reduction of nonessential automatic functions and the reduction of displayed and monitored parameters show that this could lead to a 50% saving in printed circuit cards alone. The guidelines included maintenance of the same level of manning, no loss in operational capability, maximum commonality of operator consoles and utilization of existing cards and circuitry to minimize new development.
