Rolls-Royce’s long history of using mathematical modeling and simulations of electrical, mechanical, thermal, chemical, hydraulic, hydro-mechanical and hydro-dynamic systems is utilized to understand and predict system dynamics and control characteristics. These simulations will be used to support the entire life cycle of the yacht: from concept trade-offs, through system optimizations and detailed design, to support sea trials, for problem resolution after deployment, and to evaluate the impact of design changes throughout vessel life.
Dynamic response analysis (DRA) Refers to the development of mathematical equations describing the dynamic behavior of the ship and system components and then combining these equations into a unified computer simulation that predicts the transient and steady state response of the complete system. Experienced Rolls-Royce analysts will design and analyze simulation experiments to reduce technical risk by quantifying performance, designing and analyzing controls, exposing potential performance problems, and designing corrective changes. Rolls-Royce has an extensive mathematical model library to support such efforts.
Concept and preliminary design - A DRA is frequently used to verify machinery design and selection prior to placing equipment orders. DRA can determine if candidate machinery components will yield adequate system response without encountering excessive loads.
Detailed design - DRA is used to design the supervisory propulsion control algorithms and verify that the final system design will respond well and not exceed any limits of safe machinery operation. Both normal operation and failure modes can be analyzed via DRA.
This new approach is the result of rigorous analysis considering performance, safety, reliability, maintainability capital and operational costs.

Predictive Maintenance - TotalCare
The maintenance program will be offered as an option and uses the latest tools to keep Owner in control of vessel.
To drive down ownership costs the need for accurate up-to-date information on the performance and health of equipment is vital.
Savings result from calculations to determine the remaining equipment life, so maintenance decisions are based on how the equipment is used and performing, rather than the pessimistic methods based on running hours.
For a growing number of naval and commercial customers profitable vessel operation is the business focus, not equipment maintenance. TotalCare ensures accurate budgeting and predictable costs, with no surprises.
