Marine Drive System Regulation

A. Abdul-Ameer *
The British University in Dubai, UAE


A single shaft dual turbine drive, for a marine propulsion system, is considered. Distributed-lumped analysis is used in the dynamic response prediction. This enables the relatively concentrated assemblies to be included as lumped, point-wise representations. The propulsion shaft is incorporated as a dispersed inertia and stiffness model. Multivariable, least effort regulation is employed to achieve the control required. The performance of the closed-loop system following reference input and load disturbance changes is evaluated and the drive shaft speed and twist angle response transients are computed.
