MAN B&W L60ME-C8-TII Project Guide. Electronically Controlled Two-Stroke Engines. 1st Edition, April 2010. - 371 p.
The ever valid requirement of ships operators is to obtain the lowest total operational costs, and consumption at any load, and under the prevailing operating conditions.
However, low-sulphur two-stroke main engines of the MC type, with a chain driven camshaft, have limited flexibility with regard to fuel injection and exhaust valve activation, which are the two most important factors in adjusting the engine to match the prevailing operating conditions.
A system with electronically controlled hydraulic activation provides the required flexibility, and such systems form the core of the ME "Engine Control System", described later in detail in Chapter 16.
