OVERVIEW

The latest trends in the design of nautical propulsion, generation, and control systems put the focus on solutions that ensure reliability, power, small footprint, quiet operation, accuracy, and environmental awareness.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims at providing students with the selection criteria and dimensioning of electrical installations and automation instrumentation and navigation of a pleasure craft

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The teaching aims to provide the student with tools to:

  • learn about regulatory societies and normative references for electrical systems aboard plasure vessels;
  • represent and understand electrical systems aboard vessels;
  • use elements of control and automation;
  • drafting of the electric power and energy budget;
  • know structural properties of a dynamic system;
  • preliminarily evaluate the motion control capabilities of marine units.

PREREQUISITES

mathematics, physics (thermodynamics and electromagnetism), electrotechnics

TEACHING METHODS

The course is carried out by the teacher through lectures.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Electrical installations on board ships.

Risk on board. Classification societies and regulatory references for electrical systems on board pleasure craft.

Classification of electrical machines. Shore power supply: characteristics and correct connection procedures.

Types of electrical systems on board: comparison between direct and alternating current systems , the concept of "power plant".

Electrical energy budget and battery sizing. Electrical power budget, sizing of the generators. Electrical power budget with indication of the priority and relevance of each load. Containment of the power request by guaranteeing on board services. Example of electric power budget for pleasure boat with diesel-electric propulsion.

Linear time invariant dynamic systems and their representation by equations of state and transfer functions.

Laplace transform and block diagrams.

Structural properties of a dynamical system (stability, controllability and observability).

Stability in closed loop using Nyquist and Bode criteria.

Equipment for controlling navigation systems.

RECOMMENDED READING/BIBLIOGRAPHY

All slides used during lectures and other lecture materials will be available on aul@web. In general, the notes taken during lectures and the material on aul@web are sufficient for exam preparation.

EXAM DESCRIPTION

Written/Oral test.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The oral test is designed to assess learning of the theoretical foundations presented during the course. The student's evaluation is made during the test and is based on the ability to describe independently, with coherence and ownership of terms the topics and demonstrations presented in class.
