Modeling of Ship Propulsion Performance

Benjamin Pjedsted Pedersen, Jan Larsen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


Full scale measurements of the propulsion power, ship speed, wind speed and direction, sea and air temperature, from four different loading conditions has been used to train a neural network for prediction of propulsion power. The network was able to predict the propulsion power with accuracy between 0.8-2.8%, which is about the same accuracy as for the measurements. The methods developed are intended to support the performance monitoring system SeaTrend® developed by FORCE Technology (FORCE (2008)).
