550/4500 Voltage supply

Voltage supply

VOLTAGE SUPPLY WITH POWER SUPPLY UNIT

The main voltage supply comes from the shipboard electrical power system.
This shipboard mains voltage is transformed into a 24 DC voltage by a voltage
transformer.
An additional series transformer can also be used if required by the shipboard mains
voltage.
The function of the voltage transformer is monitored by voltage monitoring relay.
When the main voltage supply is switched on, the infeed changeover contactor and the
voltage monitoring relay are activated via an interval time-delay relay (the contact closes
for about 0.2 sec at switch on and then opens again). The infeed changeover contactor
is locked by means of a contact of the voltage monitoring relay.
A feeder from the 24 V DC shipboard system is provided as a back up voltage supply.
This voltage supply is likewise monitored by a voltage monitoring relay.
In the event of failure of the main voltage supply, the shipboard electrical power system
or the voltage transformer, the 24 V DC back up voltage supply is automatically
activated. The operating voltage for the SCHOTTEL system is switched over
imperceptibly for the ships master, in other words without any effect on the operating
functions.
Failure of the main or back-up voltage supply is signaled to the warning system via
contacts of the voltage monitoring relay.
For better heat dissipation, the control cabinet is forced ventilated by means of a fan. If
there is more than one system on a vessel, the main and back-up voltage supply must
come from independent voltage sources for each system.

550/4500 360 STEERING SYTEMS

GENERAL
The Copilot control is an electro hydraulic way dependable control system for
Schottel propulsion units. The big advantage of this system consists in the fact that the
units can be controlled accurately and in the form of a way dependent control, even over
large distances, only low control, currents flow through the electrical connecting lines
between steering desk and switch box in the engine room.

360 STEERING

The remote control electronics of the 360 steering receive a presetting signal from the
potentiometer, which is fitted on the Copilot 2000. The electronic card compares the
presetting with the actual angle of the SRP and transmits a signal corresponding to the
differential angle to the hydraulics.

If the presetting angle is equal to the angle of the SRP the control is aligned.

The electronic cards contain special protective devices with malfunction detection and
visual display. If the electronic cards detect a malfunction in the control system, they
transmit a malfunction message Steering system failure to the alarm unit. Automatically
the system then changes over from way dependable to time dependable steering.

Further information is available under the system description at SCHOTTEL.

ELECTRIC HYDRAULIC THRUST DIRECTION CONTROL FOR SCHOTTEL


PROPULSION SYSTEMS

The main control system is a freely programmable, digital, way-dependent system.


The function of the control unit is based on a microcontroller system with very high
flexibility. The 360 control consists of two 19-inch electronic cards, which communicate
with each other through a field bus (Controller Area Network, CAN bus). Other user-
specific networking or decentralization can be implemented with this field bus.
A potentiometer for the thrust direction setpoint is attached to the Copilot control device
on the steering desk.
A second potentiometer, mechanically connected to the propulsion unit, is installed on
the SCHOTTEL propulsion unit to provide a feedback signal.
The setpoint value is compared with the feedback value by the electronic cards installed
in the control cabinet.
If the values are different, the hydraulic control valve is activated by the electronic card
and the thrust direction is corrected until the potentiometer values are matched.

THE ELECTRONIC CARDS MONITOR (following malfunctions):

the internal CAN bus system


the voltage supply
the digital outputs for a short circuit
the controllers installed on the cards
the setpoint and feedback potentiometers for open circuit and short circuit
the valve control for open circuit and short circuit.

All malfunctions are indicated individually by LEDs on the front of the electronic card.
If the electronic card detects a fault in the way-dependent system, it switches to the time-
dependent system, retaining the last value of the manipulated variable.
The time-dependent system remains active until it is manually reset. This is done by
switching the circuit-breaker for the way-dependent system off and back on again.

Failure of the way-dependent system is signaled to the warning system.


In time-dependent control, a rotary control switch on the steering desk acts directly on
the same control valve as with the way-dependent system.

The way- and time-dependent systems are individually protected via circuit-breakers.
The systems are supplied with voltage from a common 24V DC network.
All the components implemented in the electric system have been type-tested by
Germanischer Lloyd, RINA and DNV.

550/4500 PITCH CONTROL SYSEMS

GENERAL
The copilot pitch control is an electro-hydraulic way-dependable control system
for Schottel propulsion units. The big advantage of this system consists in the
fact that the units can be controlled accurately and in the form of a way
dependent control, even over large distances between control station and engine
room; only low control currents flow through the electrical connecting lines
between steering desk and switch box in the engine room.

PITCH CONTROL
The remote control electronics of the pitch control receive a presetting signal
from the potentiometer, which is fitted on the Copilot 2000. The electronical card
compares the presetting with the actual pitch of the SRP and transmits a signal
corresponding to the differential angle to the hydraulics.

If the presetting pitch is equal to the pitch of the SRP the control is aligned.

The electronic cards contain special protective devices with malfunction detection
and visual display. If the electronic cards detect a malfunction in the control
system, they transmit a malfunction message Pitch control failure to the alarm
unit. Automatically the system then changes over from way-dependable to time-
dependable pitch control.

550/4500 CLUTCH CONTROL

In the way dependable system the clutch is automatically engaged or


disengaged by the speed lever of the Copilot.

This is done either by a limit switch in the Copilot or by a stop switch in the
Speedronic. This means that the clutch is disengaged at idle running. If the
engine speed increases the clutch is automatically engaged.

The following lighted switch for the clutch control is installed in the steering desk:

switch in position OFF : clutch disengaged


in position AUTO : clutch switches automatically

OFF OPERATION :

If the lighted switch is in the OFF position the lamp clutch disengaged is on.
Now the speed control of the engine can be adjusted without engaged the clutch,
that means the clutch, the clutch control is out of operation.

Furthermore the clutch control can be disengaged at any r.p.m. if the switch is
turned to the OFF position.

AUTO FUNCTION:

For the normal mode the clutch switch must be turned to the AUTO position. To
select this mode the engine can be at idle r.p.m. (speed control unit in the
position IDLE). On the steering desk the lighted switch indicates CLUTCH
DISENGAGED. If the speed is increased now (with the handle on the Copilot)
the lamp CLUTCH DISENGAGED is extinguished. In the idle position of the
handle the clutch automatically disengages and the lighted switch is illuminated.

The clutch control electronic are designed for different kinds of clutches:

- Electric clutch control


- Hydraulic clutch control
- Pneumatic clutch control

The indicator lamp "COMMAND TRANSFER POSSIBLE" is illuminated on the auxiliary
steering desks.
The "STEERING DESK ON" pushbutton on the auxiliary desk must be pressed. This
causes the actuators of the thrust direction control and speed adjustment, if Speedronic,
to be switched off.
In the case of speed adjustment by means of an EP converter, the speed setting lever of
the steering desk that is to be activated must be in the idling position before the
"STEERING DESK ON" pushbutton is pressed.
The indicator lamps "WAY-DEPENDENT SYSTEM IN OPERATION" on the auxiliary
steering desk flashes.
The speed setting lever and the thrust direction control must be set to the same positions
as the propulsion unit, thus transferring command.
The flashing light of the indicator lamps changes to steady light and the actuators are
switched on again.
Command has been transferred to the auxiliary steering desk.

The main steering desk can resume command from an auxiliary steering desk at any time
by setting the desk selector switch to the position "STEERING DESK ON".
The command transfer procedure is the same as for transferring command to an auxiliary
steering desk.

Indicator lamps on each steering desk show which desk is currently active.

550/4500 WARNING SYSTEM

WARNING SYSTEM
OPTO-ACOUSTIC WARNING SYSTEM

The SCHOTTEL warning system provides a visual and acoustic indication of any
malfunctions that occur.
Each electronic card of the warning system is equipped for 5 monitoring
locations. Each warning input can be connected as either a closed-circuit or an
open-circuit input.
Each warning input can be delayed by means of a potentiometer accessible from
the front.
Malfunctions occurring during operation are signaled acoustically by the horn and
visually by a rapidy flashing light.
When the alarm is ackknowledge by pressing the push button HORN OFF on
the steering desk the acustic signal is stopped and the flashlight changes to
steady light.
The steady light is extinguished when the malfunction is remedied.
If a second malfunction is signaled before the first has been remedied, the horn is
reactivated and the new malfunction is indicated by a rapidy flashing light.
If a malfunction is rectified automatically before being acknowledged, the
acoustic signal is switched off and the rapidly flashing light changes to slow
flashing. The electronic card has been type-tested by Germanischer Lloyd.

550/4500 SCHOTTEL MASTERPILOT

GENERAL

The SCHOTTEL MASTERPILOT control system is a micro processor based


control system for ships with one or more Rudderpropellers, jets or bow thrusters.

A clearly structured input unit permits the captain to perform all kinds of
manoeuvres without having go pay attention to speeds, propeller pitches or thrust
directions. Therefore the captain can fully concentrate on the application and
operation of the ship. Control problems are solved by the microprocessor.

The SCHOTTEL MASTERPOLOT control system enables the ship to be moved


with a precision so high that it can hardly be reached even in case of high
concentration by captains controlling the ship manually.

The microprocessor, which is the heart of the whole SCHOTTEL MASTERPILOT


control system, identifies the moving direction and intensity desired. It computes
the speeds, rudder positions and control system for implementation of the
computed values in the correct in the correct order.

Operating-, Mounting- and Maintenance Instructions are to be observed.

550/4500 SCHOTTEL COMBINATOR

GENERAL

The Schottel combinator steering system is based on a microcomputer system. It


is designed for unit arrangement which consists of a controllable engine (diesel)
and a pitch controlled propeller.

The computer calculates the values for optimal revolutions and pitch from the
speed lever. In this way the engine always runs in its optimal working point. A
sensor for fuel feedback on the engine detects if the vessel is under bollard pull
conditions or not. The optimal pitch for these working points is calculated from
the fuel feedback and is adjusted automatically.

In the fire-fighting mode the revolutions of the engine are fixed and the pitch is
adjustable. The pitch is controlled as in the normal mode.

Each error occuring in the program and resulting in a stop of the program is
recognized by an internal watchdog circuit. Such an error results in switching to
the way-dependable CP steering system.

SPEEDRONIC SPEED ADJUSTMENT


SPEED ADJUSTMENT (SPEEDRONIC) FOR DRIVE ENGINES

The main speed adjustment system is a freely programmable, digital, way-


dependent system.
The function of the control unit is based on a microcontroller system with very
high flexibility.
A potentiometer for the speed setpoint is attached to the speed setting lever on
the steering desk.
A second potentiometer, mechanically connected to the adjusting lever, is
installed in the final controlling device on the drive engine to provide a feedback
signal. The setpoint value is compared with the feedback value by the electronic
card installed in the control cabinet. If the values are different, the servomotor in
the final controlling device is activated by the electronic card via relays and the
speed is corrected until the potentiometer values are matched.

The electronic card monitors following following malfunctions:

- the voltage supply


- the digital outputs for a short circuit
- the controller installed on the card
- the setpoint and feedback potentiometers for open circuit and short circuit.

All malfunctions are indicated individually by LEDs on the front of the


electronic card. If the electronic card detects a fault in the way-dependent
system, it switches to the time-dependent system, retaining the last value of the
manipulated variable.
The time-dependent system remains active until it is manually reset. This is
done by switching the miniature circuit-breaker for the way-dependent system
off and back on again. Failure of the way-dependent system is signaled to the
warning system. In time-dependent speed adjustment, a rotary control switch on
the steering desk acts directly on the same servomotor as with the way-
dependent system.
The way- and time-dependent systems are individually protected via miniature
circuit-breakers. The systems are supplied with voltage from a common 24 DC
network. All the components implemented in the electric system have been
type-tested by Germanischer Lloyd, RINA and DNV.

FOR DRIVE ENGINES

SPEED ADJUSTMENT
SPEED ADJUSTMENT WITH EP (ELECTRO PNEUMATIC CONVERTER)
FOR DRIVE ENGINES

The speed adjustment system is a way- dependent system.


For this purpose a potentiometer for the speed setpoint is attached to the speed
setting lever on the steering desk.
The voltage signal of the setpoint potentiometer is converted into a 4 to 20 mA
current signal by an electronic card installed in the control cabinet.
This current signal controls the electro-pneumatic converter mounted on the drive
engine.
When the Rudderropeller is engaged, the control signal for the converter and
thus the engine speed are increased. The speed setting via the speed control
lever is inactive during the speed increase. After the Rudderpropeller has been
engaged, the speed setting of the final controlling device is reactivated.
The electronic card can also be used to implement functions such as:
Reduction of the engine speed to 80%, for example, in case of a reduction alarm
from the warning system
Reduction of the engine speed to idling speed in case of a stop alarm from the
warning system.
If the power supply to the speed adjustment system fails, the value last set is
retained via the converter.
The electronic card is type tested by GL, DNV, and RINA.
