Landing Helicopter Dock - DE32 LHD

The K-Sim Engine DE32 LHD model is based on a Landing Helicopter Dock witha CODAG-E Engine configuration from a modern Navy LHD Ship. CODAG-E isa combination of two types of engines connected to generators. The propulsion is driven electrically as in a diesel-electric configuration with two 6.6 kV Diesel Generators each rated 7,2 MW and one Turbine Generator rated 17,4 MWpresenting the electric power generation.

The model has 2 x 11 MW podded  azimuth propulsion motors & 2 x 1500 kW Bow thrusters.The control and automation systems include sophisticated power management,pump control and propulsion control.

Training objectives

The K-Sim Engine DE32 LHD model is designed to be a valuable tool in the basicand advanced training of marine engineers. The main object for the simulator is to cover the operation and system understanding of combining diesel generators andturbine generator in a diesel-electric propulsion system with podded azimuths as propulsion motors. Control room operator panels as well as bridge and steering panels are included. The training objectives includes emergency operations and trouble shooting,optimal operation, fuel economy and energy conservation. This is achieved bycontrolled training, leading to better understanding of the total plant operation, asa result of realistic simulation of a real engine room.
