ship propulsion, engine propeller matching, PTO generator, engine overload.


This paper presents an analysis of power take off (PTO) generator connected to main engine and its effects to engine overload and ship speed. The purposes of research is to determine the safe operation of PTO generator by adjusting the ship speed. The PTO generator is a generator coupled with main engine to drive a cooling machine. The analysis of engine propeller matching method is used to determine the working points of ship propulsion coupled with PTO generator. The results of simulation show that  the output power of main engine decreases by 8.4% of maximum continuous rating (MCR) point with the maximum speed is 5.4 knots. When it is connected to PTO generator, the output power of main engine does not decrease. It can be operated to MCR point with the maximum speed is 5.1 knots.
