Abstract:

A method for the recovery of waste heat energy exhausted by a main propulsion diesel engine and ships service electrical power diesel engines in a naval vessel is proposed and evaluated. Waste heat recovery boilers and steam system components are designed for the recovery of the exhausted diesel energy as a means of improving the fuel efficiency of diesel engines for shipboard application. The waste heat recovery analysis evaluates the main propulsion diesel engine operating at 50 maximum continuous rating and ships service electrical power diesel engines operating at 75 maximum continuous rating. Waste heat boilers and steam system components are sized and a possible propulsion plant arrangement is presented. Author
