This paper presents a marine diesel engine simulation code designed for real-time performance. The main novelty is that the various equations are derived from the laws of thermodynamics, thus guaranteeing qualitatively accurate predictions and allowing for easy use with any type of engine. The code is based on the "filling and emptying" method with various simplifications to achieve real-time performance. A number of failure models were added to interface the code with a propulsion training application. This was done in order to educate crews on failure detection and the management of emergencies.
