A design concept of main propulsion system with hydrostatic transmission gear for inland waterways ship


This analysis is aimed at presentation of a design concept of ship’s main propulsion system and determination of its total efficiency. To realize the task it is necessary to have a look at description of energy losses and efficiency of hydrostatic transmission gear, with taking into account its possible simplification. Image of mutual interaction of losses generated in all elements of hydraulic system appears very complex. In this paper energy balance of main propulsion system with hydrostatic transmission gear intended for a segment ship for inland waterways and coastal service, was analyzed under assumption of necessary simplifications.
