Norcontrol Engine-Room Simulator For Singapore Nearing Completion
Norcontrol Simulation AS of Horten, Norway, is nearing completion of an engine-room training simulator due for delivery to the Singapore Polytechnic this fall.
Norcontrol introduced it's first DieselSim training simulator for diesel engine rooms in 1978. Since then, 18 engine-room training simulators have been delivered around the world, making Norcontrol a market-leader with this type of simulator.
Close cooperation with the operators of their delivered simulators has provided Norcontrol with valuable information to continue development and improvement of the product.
The simulator for Singapore is one of the most sophisticated engine- room simulators produced to date. It has standard engine control room systems to normal production standards, combined with dynamic simulation models giving very authentic reproduction of the required characteristics. An ND-100 computer communicates with the various panels and consoles by distributed microprocessors. The basic Diesel- Sim simulator has been extended to provide increased training capacity by including a color display system, large-scale mimic diagram, extended main switchboard, separate boiler control console and a watchcalling system.
A color display system with eight terminals enables more students to individually study the changing situation.
One terminal can be connected to a large-scale projector, enabling the entire class to watch a simulation exercise. The display system can also be used with other Norcontrol simulation programs.
For example, to show oil production processes or liquid cargo handling and control.
A large mimic panel, 6 meters in length, in the engine room partly replaces the previous machinery panels, enabling students to quickly become familiar with the propulsion plant being simulated.
The new main switchboard has been extended to seven sections for: distribution, emergency generator, shaft generator, turbogenerator, synchronizing/shore connections, diesel generator 1 and diesel generator 2. An isolation system enables students to isolate various subsystems for independent simulation, simultaneously.
A separate console in the engine control room provides simulation of a steam supply system. This was developed from research into computerized boiler control and steam plant performance monitoring.
An important feature of the DieselSim simulator is the presetting of selected faults. The instructor can program the simulator to demonstrate a number of different faultsituations.
The students can then run exercises with or without the instructor present. The event log, alarm log and backtrack snapshots enable the exercises to be evaluated with the instructor at a later stage.
The provision of a watch-calling system adds realism and allows students to participate in learning about watch responsibilities. It also enables more students to play an active part in the exercises.
