HYDRAULIC CONTROL OF RUDDER, STABILIZING FINS, RUDDER-ROLL, VARIABLE PITCH PROPELLER
Maneuverability, reduced vibration and noise, improved propulsion and stability are some of the characteristics studied and optimized in the development of our solutions for the control of the rudder, stabilizing fins and rudder-roll.
In the latter case, a complex system of data acquisition, command and electro-hydraulic controls, harmonizes the signals to verify the keeping of the ship route and the roll reduction. In this way, the rudder and steering gear perform two functions: steering and stabilization.
The stabilization is obtained by applying a steering torque against the roll, using the same principle of a conventional stabilizer fin, however, without affecting the ability of the ship government.
