The IEM VENUS is designed for the trainees and engineers in shipping world to learn fundamental knowledge and basic operation know-how of machincry system in engine room visually, theoretically and practically. The system supports the engineers to achieve the skills mentioned below, without purchasing expensive actual machines. Moreover, the system can simulate variety of diesel engine operations, safely and easily by means of the diesel engine simulator, COMLEX.<BR>The basic requirements of technical skill to keep safe operation, which is expected for those who are in charge of ship's engine room are as follows;<BR>•Engineers must understand machiner'y function, structure and performance.<BR>•Engineers must understand the functional relations among the machinery.<BR>•Engineers must read a performance curve of individual machine and system.<BR>•Engineers can hold a consultation with a shore support people and manufacture about technological matters.<BR>•Engineers can evaluate a machinery's shop test performance.<BR>•Engineers can give a proper guide to the crew.<BR>•Engineers can process a report of performance data.<BR>The system offers;<BR>1) Engineers can understand machincry basic function, mechanism and structure visually. Fundamental performance curves which engineers study form to judge machinery condition and carry maintenance work properly are illustrated and explained.<BR>2) Typical system piping diagrams which are classified into three layers by functions i.e. basic, stand by, automatic and safety functions to understand step by step are illustrated and explainted as well as actual piping diagrams.<BR>3) The system allows engineers to understand tangibly marine diesel engine performance by the diesel engine simulator, "COMLEX".
