This paper describes the handling characteristics of a simulated, gas turbine powered vessel using several different transmission schemes. These include both mechanically clutched and hydrodynamic reversing reduction gears, and two modes of operation using controllable, reversible pitch propellers. Schemes for controlling the various transmission systems are described together with the necessary integration to provide “single lever” propulsion control. The response of the simulated systems are presented for both normal and emergency maneuvers.
