# ENGINE ROOM VENTILATION AIRFLOW CALCULATION

## Base on the following data:

a Main Engine :6000 kw x 2 sets
b Main Generator : 790 kw x 2 sets
c Bulk Air Compressor elect motor : 132 kw x 2 sets
d Bulk Air Compressor air consumption : 27 m3/min x 2 sets
e Main Generator : 47 m3/hr x 2 sets

where P
dp
is the service standard power of the main propulsion diesel engine(s) at
maximum continuous power output,in kilowatts;
m
is the air requirement for combustion for diesel engine(s),in kilograms per
kilowatts second; Where specific data for m
are not available, the following
values may be used for calculation:
m
=
0.0023kg/(kW.s) for 2-stroke engines,
0.002kg/(kW.s) for 4-stroke engine.
r = 1.13 kg/m

dp
is the service standard power of the main propulsion diesel engines) at
maximum continuous rating,in kilowatts;
h
d
is the heat loss from the diesel engine(s),in percentage.
Note : * - the data is provided by Wartsila (engine manufacturer).

is the service standard power of the diesel generator engine at
maximum continuous rating,in kilowatts;
h
d
is the heat loss from the diesel engine(s),in percentage.
Note : since the specific data are not available.
f
dg
=
40 kW per set (with its standard service power of 790 kW).
f
