  3. 3. 1. Introduction Automation or Automatic Control is the use of various control systems for operating equipment such as machinery and processes in factories. The biggest benefit of automation is that it saves labor, however, it is also used to save energy and materials and to improve quality, accuracy and precision. In the maritime industry, the human element of the human- machine system is becoming an endangered species, partly because of the drive towards smaller crew numbers, but largely due to spreading of automation use.
  4. 4. The Centrifugal governor, which dates to the last quarter of the 18th century, was used to adjust the gap between millstones. The centrifugal governor was also used in the automatic flour mill developed by Oliver Evans in 1785, making it the first completely automated industrial process. 2. Historical Overview of Automation 2.1. The Centrifugal Governor

  6. 6. 2. Historical Overview of Automation 2.2. The Chip Log This method was known as a Dutchman’s log. The number of knots that had gone over the ship’s stern represent ship’s speed.
  7. 7. 2. Historical Overview of Automation 2.3. The Astrolabe Mariner’s Astrolabe was used to determine the latitude of a ship at sea by measuring the noon altitude of the sun or the meridian altitude of a star in which the declination is known.
  8. 8. 2. Historical Overview of Automation 2.4. Water level float control This regulator is the first historical feedback system. The float detects the water level and controls the valve that covers the water inlet in the Tank.
  9. 9. 3. Ship Automated Control System – Ship Automation DEFINITION: A control system is an interconnection of components forming a system configuration that will provide a desired system response. The input– output relationship represents the cause and effect relationship of the process. A basic instrument system consists of three elements: • Sensors • Signal processor • Receiver or output device
  10. 10. 3. Ship Automated Control System – Ship Automation An open-loop control system utilizes a controller or control actuator to obtain the desired response. An open-loop system is a system without feedback.
  11. 11. 3. Ship Automated Control System – Ship Automation a closed-loop control system utilizes an additional measure of the actual output to compare the actual output with the desired output response.
  12. 12. This system permits the Level gauging, Control of cargo pumps, Valve control, Ballast and ballast pump control, Heeling control, Remote monitoring of temperature, pressure, and flow. 3. Ship Automated Control System – Ship Automation Cargo control system Signal control unitComputer unit Tank level sensors Cargo temperature sensor Various other sensors
  13. 13. 3. Ship Automated Control System – Sensors The devices used to transform one kind of energy to another is called Transducer, When the transducer converts a physical quantity into electrical current it is called SENSOR When the transducer converts an electrical current into physical quantity it is called ACTUATOR
  14. 14. Sensors can be classified according to several categories: 3. Ship Automated Control System – Sensors Passive and active sensors Analogue and digital sensors Wired or Wireless sensors
  15. 15. It can be classified according to several categories: 3. Ship Automated Control System – Sensors Passive and active sensors Analogue and digital sensors Wired or Wireless sensors Passive sensor: Requires an external source of power Active sensor: The output power is almost entirely provided by the measured signal. Digital sensor: The signal produced or reflected by the sensor is binary. Analogue sensor: The signal produced by the sensor is continuous and proportional to the measured parameter. Wired sensor: Needs to be connected via electric cables to the control unit. Wireless sensor: It is connected via wireless network to the control unit.

  20. 20. Pressure sensors: Silicone type This type of sensor work by the resistance principle, the silicon chip flexes as the pressure changes, the amount of silicon chip flexes determine the output voltage signal. As the measured pressure rises, the voltage signal increases. Voltage signal curve. 4. Sensors on board Ship
  21. 21. Bourdon tubes are made of spring-like metal alloys bent into a circular shape. Most pressure gauges use a bourdon tube as their pressure-sensing element. Pressure sensors: Bourdon tube typeTank monitoring system: 4. Sensors on board Ship
  22. 22. The sensor emits a microwave pulse towards the process material. This pulse is reflected by the surface of the material and detected by the same sensor which now acts as a receiver. Level measurement: Radar level sensor 4. Sensors on board Ship
  23. 23. Level measurement: Pressure based level sensors 4. Sensors on board Ship By measuring the pressure at the bottom, or in the tank wall in a known height, we can determine the level.
  24. 24. This system is pressure based, pressure sensors are placed in the ship’s hull, the pressure value varies proportionally to the water level change, so the draught is measured. Pressure sensor Pressure sensor Level measurement: Draught measuring system 4. Sensors on board Ship
  25. 25. 4. Sensors on board Ship Flow meters – Meshing rotor flow meter The Meshing rotor type consists of two rotors with lobes. When fluid is forced in, the rotors turn and operate the indicating system.
  26. 26. 4. Sensors on board Ship Flow meters – Vortex flow meter The function of vortex flow meters is based on the principle of the Karman vortex street. The measuring tube contains a bluff body, behind which vortex shedding occurs. The number of vortices passing through the sensor (pressure sensor) determine the flow rate. Flow direction
  27. 27. Engine pressure sensor – Piezoelectric type The word piezoelectricity means electricity resulting from pressure. Piezoelectric pressure sensor generates certain amount of electricity which is proportional to the value of the applied pressure. It is used to determine pressure inside cylinders. 4. Sensors on board Ship
  28. 28. Engine pressure sensor – Capacitance type It works by capacitance, it contains two metallic discs, when the pressure acts, it causes the change in distance between the two discs, as the gap changes, the capacitance also changes. 4. Sensors on board Ship
  29. 29. Thermistors are the most common used sensor to measure temperature of engine’s cooling liquid, lubricating oil and the intake manifold. Engine Temperature sensor – Thermistor type The resistance of thermistors is inversely proportional to temperature, as temperature increases, resistance decreases. 4. Sensors on board Ship

  31. 31. 5. Digital Control System (DCS) Definition: A Digital Control System (DCS) is a modern control system for a process or plant, wherein controlled elements are shown and can be adjusted via Human Machine Interface (HMI). This system shows via several control panels mimic diagrams for the controlled installations, which makes the control much easier. DCSs are the modern type of the “Automatic Computer Controlled Systems” family, in which we can change functioning parameters only by touching the digital interface.
