This paper presents the SELENDIA code designed for the simulation of marine diesel engines. Various measured and simulated results are compared for the performance of a sequentially turbocharged marine diesel engine during a switch from one to two turbochargers. The results show a good agreement between measured and simulated data. Surge loops that are experimentally observed in case of an anomaly are analyzed using simulated results. Finally, the predictive capabilities of the simulation code are utilized to investigate the influence of the inlet manifold volume on the engine and air charging system performance with a special focus on compressor surge.
