The article is devoted to the development of a software and hardware complex for simulating the operation of ship’s electric propulsion systems and for high-quality education, training and scientific research. A distinctive feature of the proposed simulator is the possibility of using data base from control and monitoring systems of real ships, followed by intelligent processing of the obtained data to simulate both nominal and emergency situations. The training complex reproduces most ship’s operating situations, provides training on monitoring, control and management of low voltage and high-voltage power plants. The need to apply the training complex allows the formation of the required competence of the engine room personnel, develop methods and criteria for assessing competence, evaluate and demonstrate the practical skills obtained, and also provides an opportunity to conduct scientific research work. The proposed solutions can be used in the training complex for the high-quality training of engine department personnel in accordance with the requirements and standards of the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping Convention.
