HIL testing of a propulsion control system for LNG tankers has been demonstrated by Marine Cybernetics and ABB in a pilot project.

In this pilot project, Marine Cybernetics has developed a HIL simulator and a test program for testing and verification of propulsion control systems, both according to the DNV Standard for Certification of HIL testing. ABB Marine has contributed with development support and developed a dedicated OPC HIL interface, rendering their propulsion control systems CyberSea HIL compliant.

The pilot project extends the CyberSea technology platform to cover HIL testing of Propulsion and Thruster control systems in addition to DP and Power Management Systems. HIL technology enables broader, deeper and earlier testing of control systems, resulting in reduced time for commissioning at yard, reduced time for sea trials, and reduced risk for incidents and downtime at sea.
