what is spceific fuel consumption and how fuel calculate...

Answer / yoganand.k

If you know the tested SFC of that engine,multiplying with
the total power output and again multiplying it with 24
will give you the consumption per day.

For Example;

main engine power = 500 kW
SFC of M/E = 170 g/kWh

Fuel consumption/day = 500*170*24/10^6
= 2.04 tons/day
