Engine Control System

The engine control system is a critical part of a vessel. It’s primarily managed by the Engine Control Unit (ECU), also known as the Engine Control Module (ECM). The ECU is a type of electronic control unit that controls a series of actuators on an internal combustion engine to ensure optimal engine performance.

It does this by reading values from a multitude of sensors within the engine bay, interpreting the data using multidimensional performance maps (called lookup tables), and adjusting the engine actuators accordingly.

The ECU controls systems such as:

Fuel Injection: The ECU determines the amount of fuel to inject into the engine based on various sensor readings.

Ignition System: The ECU also controls when to ignite the air-fuel mixture in the engine.

Idle Speed: The ECU maintains the idle speed of the engine.

Variable Valve Timing: On engines with this feature, the ECU controls the timing of the valve opening and closing.

By managing these systems, the ECU helps to ensure that the engine runs at its best performance, improves fuel efficiency, and reduces emissions. It’s like the brain of your vessel’s engine.

The Propulsion Control System for marine applications is a comprehensive system of control devices, displays, indicators and modules designed to suit all possible propulsion configurations of a modern ship. The human interface of PCS, ProTouch, is a complete system of levers and touch screen interfaces, that responds to market demands for modern and compact control devices.

Applicable to engine applications with variable propeller speed operations and the ProTouch PCS, EcoControl uses a smart control system to combine the optimal propeller pitch with the optimal engine load, thereby ensuring that fuel consumption is reduced to its most efficient level during transit sailing modes.
