Pielstick 6PC Multi Purpose Vessel M21

K-Sim Engine Pielstick 6PC20 Multi Purpose model's propulsion machinery is based on two Pielstick 6PC20 medium speed, 6 cylinder, 4- stroke, turbo-charged, non-reversible diesel engines. The main engine models respond dynamically to variations in operation and conditions of the ship model and the ship models have mutual responses to the main engine models.

The main engines are coupled to a propeller shaft with controllable pitch propeller, via a reduction gear and an air-operated clutch. Also a shaft generator is attached the reduction gear.

The propulsion plant may be operated in combinator/ split/ economy/ shaft generator mode. The electrical power plant includes two diesel engine driven generators, one shaft driven generator and one emergency generator.

Training objectives

The K-Sim Engine Pielstick 6PC20 Multi Purpose Vessel M21 model is designed to be a valuable tool in the basic and advanced training of marine engineers. The training objectives are to train junior engineers in basic engine room operations, senior engineers in emergency operations and trouble shooting, and to train senior and chief engineers in optimal operation, fuel economy and energy conservation. This is achieved by controlled training, leading to better understanding of the total plant operation, as a result of realistic simulation of a real engine room.
