Pielstick 10PC4 Ferry M22-IV

The K-Sim Engine Pielstick 10PC4 Ferry M22-IV model simulates a ferry with a propulsion machinery based on two Pielstick 10 PC 4.2, medium speed, 10 cylinder/V-configuration, 4-stroke, turbocharged, non-reversible diesel engines.

The main enginemodel respond dynamically to variations in operation and conditions of the shipmodel, and the ship model have mutual responses to the main engine model.Eachmain engine is coupled to a propeller shaft with controllable pitch propeller, viaa reduction gear and an air-operated clutch. Also a shaft generator is attached toeach reduction gear. The propulsion plant may be operated in combinator/ split/economy/ shaft generator mode.The electrical power plant includes two 600 kWdiesel engine driven generators, two 600 kW/synchronous shaft driven generatorsand one 180 kW emergency generator. The engines can operate on Heavy Fuel Oiland Marine Diesel Oil.

Training objectives

The K-Sim Engine Pielstick 10PC4 Ferry M22-IV model is designed to be a valuable toolin the basic and advanced training of marine engineers. The training objectives areto train junior engineers in basic engine room operations, senior engineers in emergency operations and trouble shooting, and to train senior and chief engineersin 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.
