Abstract

With a 53,000-ton coastal bulk carrier as the selected ship, modelling and simulating of the ship real-time fuel consumption are carried out. Firstly, the on-board data collection system is introduced as well as the operational features of the selected ship. Then, based on the interaction relation of the hull-engine-propeller, the real-time fuel consumption model of the selected ship is developed using empirical formulas. Lastly, this model is simulated on the MATLAB/Simulink considering the impact of the random environmental factors, like, wind and wave. Comparison analysis between the simulated results and the actual measurement data is also carried out. The results indicate that the measured fuel consumption and speed shows a high degree of dispersion due to the Changeable working condition of the ship and the uncertainty existing in the on-board data monitoring system; the developed model has a good accuracy in predicting real-time fuel consumption. This research could help the ship manager to assess the likely fuel consumption level under different ocean environment.
