Diesel-Electric Propulsion Plant Trainer


Norcontrol's Propulsion Plant Trainers provide the medium for trainees to experience propulsion system operations in a realistic, ship like environment. Features include vital components such as main engine remote control, engine-room local panels, controllers, engine telegraph, alarm systems, power supply switchboards, engine sounds etc. Simulators incorporate not only the main engine but also the control systems and all relevant sub- and auxiliary systems. Accompanied by comprehensive hydrodynamic models, these translate into highly realistic ship trainers. The software engineering of the entire propulsion plant is based on sub-models of the main engine and various auxiliary systems such as the fuel systems, seawater system, etc. These sub-systems consist in turn of basic models of pumps, pipes, filters, etc. All systems are fully interactive, forming a dynamic real-time software model. The PPT2000-DE AC/AC simulator is based on a large cruise ship with two synchronous propulsion motors with two separate three phase windings which make "half motor" operation possible. Two direct coupled fixed pitch propellers. The electric power is generated by four diesel driven generators.

Vessel’s main particulars: tonnage 77,000 GRT, length 261 m, speed, 18.5 knots, 2 propellers @145 rpm, 2 rudders, 2 main electric motors 2.2 kV 14 MW 0-145 rpm reversible, 4 main generators 6.6 kV 1.1 MW, 2 emergency generators 440 V 650 kW, 2 bow thrusters 6.6 kV 1700 kW, 2 stern thrusters 6.6 kV 1400 kW. Norcontrol have an extensive model library of different propulsion plants and engines, based on real existing engines. The library includes models for engines such as MAN B&W, Sulzer, Pielstick, MaK, Caterpillar, and MTU as well as Diesel Electric and Steam plants. The PPT 2000 simulators can be networked to Ship's Bridge Simulators for complete ship team training.
