Simulation of the Main Engine Remote Control System for Marine Education and Training
Training simulator is a necessary equipment for modern navigation education to accords with the demands of the STCW78/10 convention. A new type of simulation training system for main engine remote control has been successfully put into use for chief engineer’ training, which is the main part of the modern marine engine room simulator recently developed by Qingdao Ocean Shipping Mariners College and Dalian Maritime University. The simulation system, the simulated object of which are the Autochief 4 remote control system, the main engine with the type of MAN B&W 10L90MC and the pneumatic maneuvering system, has good simulation effect due to accurate mathematical models, nice human-machine interfaces and abundant troubles to shot. This paper introduces the innovative design, the plentiful functions of the simulation system and the application of IT.
