Gas turbine, regeneration, sailing speed thermal efficiency, fuel consumption
Sailing speed isimportant an factor in choosing marine engines. The uses of gas turbine as co-propulsion engine forimproving sailing speed of ecotourism vessels to fulfill requirement of SAR operation. Gas turbine co-propulsion engine have an advantage of high power to weight ratio in comparative to other heat engines. This paper presents the results and study on diesel engine, simple cycle gas turbine and regenerative gas turbine performances The relation between the thermal efficiency of heat engine to fuel consumption is used to estimate fuel consumption rate. The design of heat engine can be determined the specific heat ratio and pressure ratio of the operation cycle which will give necessary impacts to the thermal efficiency of the heat engine. Results from the numerical calculation for the implementation of gas turbine will provide he decision support. The paper also discusses the impact of co-propulsion engine to the ships stability and proper power rating of gas turbine co-propulsion engine estimated by numerical calculation in order to achieve maximum sailing speed up to 35 knots.
