MERCHANT SHIP APPLICATIONS OF MEDIUM SPEED GEARED DIESEL ENGINES AND ASSOCIATED AUXILIARY MACHINERY

The concepts of packaged propulsion machinery installations and auxiliary machinery modules are described and the advantages of both packaging and the use of modules studied. The designs of propulsion machinery packages, incorporating auxiliary machinery modules, for three specific ship types are then discussed in some detail. The logic leading up to the selection of a twin medium speed geared Diesel installation with controllable pitch propeller and geared-driven alternator( s ) as the basic configuration for each of the three ships is described, and each of the auxiliary systems for the propulsion and generating machinery is examined and a standard system for each proposed. The design of a series of auxiliary machinery modules suitable for medium speed Diesel engines is described. The general principles used apply to any of the available medium speed Diesel engines in the 400 to 1000 bhp/cyl power range. Examples of the resultant module designs and the general arrangement of the machinery installations for each ship are illustrated.
