United Engine Corporation is launching a digital twin of a next-generation gas turbine engine for ships up to 12 thousand. tonnes. This is stated in the message “Rostec”.
The development will allow you to manage the life cycle and increase the reliability of the power plant
– said in Rostec.
According to the explanations, digital twin – this is a mathematical model, containing complete product data. With the help of this development, various tests can be carried out at all stages of the creation and life cycle of the engine., which significantly reduces the time and cost of design, creation of prototypes, testing and debugging of the power plant.
Digitalization reduces the time and cost of designing power plants, including – new generation marine gas turbine engine lines (…) digital twin will allow us to offer customers (…) full life cycle contract, implying the supply and maintenance of the engine at all stages of operation
– declared in the UEC.
The work on the double is carried out by a Rybinsk enterprise “ODK-Saturn” together with Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, “Skoltech” and CIAM. It is planned to develop mathematical models of GTE units and a gearbox for a basic marine engine with a power 20,2 MW, promising marine engine power 25 MW and reducer PO55. Completion of work is scheduled for 2023 year.
