Hydrostatic drives used on board ships are often characterized by low efficiencies, heavy maintenance, frequent oil leaks and large weight and size. To overcome these drawbacks, oil-free inverter-fed alternative drives can be proposed. This paper analyzes the ship rudder hydraulic drive performances, and a proposal for improvements is shown. A full-scale permanent magnet linear synchronous motor directly coupled to a twin rudder is presented, used as a servo-motor. Both servo-assistance features and performance and efficiency improvements are evaluated by using a complete physical model in Simulink environment.

Abstract

Hydrostatic drives used on board ships are often characterized by low efficiencies, heavy maintenance, frequent oil leaks and large weight and size. To overcome these drawbacks, oil-free inverter-fed alternative drives can be proposed. This paper analyzes the ship rudder hydraulic drive performances, and a proposal for improvements is shown. A full-scale permanent magnet linear synchronous motor directly coupled to a twin rudder is presented, used as a servo-motor. Both servo-assistance features and performance and efficiency improvements are evaluated by using a complete physical model in Simulink environment.
