The VSP is the safest and most accurate drive system for ships: thrust can be varied extremely fast, steplessly and precisely into all directions.
Perhaps you still remember the predecessor program iVSP? It certainly helped to explain the VSP technology, but the ship sailed without illustrating the complex physical effects. With the new version you get a quasi-realistic on-board experience of the advantages of the VSP, and also gain a 3D insight into the heart of the VSP – its kinematics.
The program iVSP 2.0 has three menu points: “Free Driving Mode” “Kinematics & Forces” and “Active Simulation Training.”
The vessel that you will find under the menu points “Free Driving Mode“ and/or “Active Simulation Training“ is ready to sail and depicted as realistically as possible: the forces of the VSPs, the hydromechanics of the ship and all inertia effects are accurately captured in a time simulation. In the range “Active Simulation Training“ you can test your capabilities of steering a VSP-driven ship in a contest with other captains.
Under “Kinematics & Forces“you learn how the unique mechanics and hydromechanics of the Voith Schneider Propeller work. Take your time: alternate between the buttons “Kinematics“ and “Hydrodynamic Forces“, modify the speed, the longitudinal and transverse thrust, and monitor the movements of the kinematics and/or the generation of hydrodynamic forces. Witness how the secret of the VSP is being revealed.
We wish you a great time on board - Voith Turbo Mobility.
