Massachusetts Institute of Technology DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING 2.611 SHIP POWER and PROPULSION Frigate Propulsion Plant Design Project, PHASE II For project two you will be working in the same groups as project one. The second part of the design project is to select the two most appropriate power plants for final evaluation in Phase 3. You should use the propulsors selected in Phase I (corrected if necessary) to carry out economic evaluations of combinations of propulsors and power plants. The selection process should be based on minimum life cycle cost. The power plants to be considered should include (but are not limited to) simple gas turbines, inter-cooled recuperative gas turbines (ICR), and medium speed diesels. Reduction gears with controllable reversible pitch propellers (CRP) and electric drive with fixed pitch propellers should be considered for the drive train and propulsor. You should select the two “best” power plants for the ship. Summary sheet:
