K-Sim Engine Thermal Power Plant

The K-Sim Engine Thermal Power Plant simulator is based on a real thermal power plant in Vasteras, Sweden. The main purpose of the Thermal Power Plant simulator is to train and assess operators in plant operation, including training in plant start-up and shut-down, emergency situations and safety procedures.

The simulated plant is made available to be fuelled with oil (mainly for start-ups with special start-up burners) or coal. At pure condensation operation the block produces a net electrical output of 255 MW (190 MW for coal). The utility heatinghot water effect at back pressure operation is 350 MW with oil, and 260 MW for coal.

Training objectives

The Thermal Power Plant model is designed to be a valuable tool in the basic and advanced training of 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.

Compliant with industry requirements

Kongsberg Digital simulator models exceed requirements in the STCW convention, Regulation 1/12 and fulfill DNV GL’s standard DNVGL-ST-0033 for MaritimeSimulator Systems.
