Starting Air & Control Systems


Different methods are employed for starting marine diesel engines on board ships depending on the type and kind of engine. Some of the most common forms of methods used on board ships are manual, electrical, and mechanical systems. In a ship’s main propulsion or in auxiliary engines, considerable torque is required to overcome the inertia of large reciprocating masses. For this purpose, the energy stored in the compressed air is used. However some reasons for low maintenance or malfunctions, there is a considerable challenge faced by marine engineers to sometimes start the main engine through the starting air system. A senior engineer who has faced many such incidents in his 30 years as chief engineer educates us in this course on the correct operation and maintenance of starting air and control systems.
