Abstract

The power generation system of the Type 23 Frigate is multi-configurable, with a range of operator rules for choosing a configuration under various operational requirements or subsystem failures. YARD built a model of this system under contract to Yarrow Shipbuilders Ltd., in order to forecast the system availability as a function of mission profile, and thus identify any potential weaknesses in the system or its equipment, and non-compatibilities with specified target requirements. The model uses discrete-event Monte-Carlo simulation, and includes the system topography, start-up and random failures, and the system operating rules. The complexity of these operating rules required the concepts of a knowledge-based system approach to be applied to the problem, giving an interesting combination of O.R. and Expert Systems methodologies.
