Programming with Auto TWA ON or OFF
Post by iconPost by Sir_Petrus | 2014-11-20 | 13:10:13

Hi Cvetan and everybody
I have a big doubt.
What is the behaviour on the boat according to the following conditions:

AUTO TWA "ON":
prog to course - IT follows course or TWA???
Prog to TWA - follows TWA

AUTO TWA "OFF":
prog to course - IT follows course.
Prog to TWA - follows TWA or course coresponding to inicial TWA???

Thanks and good winds
Pedro

No.At least to my knowledge there is no manual. And nobody I have asked, knows about it. :(

My experience is that it works as it should, at least according to my logic.

- Put auto-TWA on now, the boat will gradually change course so that TWA remains constant, also over wind update
- Put in a scheduled Compas Heading command, the boat will maintain that compass heading, also over wind update
- Put in a scheduled TWA command, the boat will gradually change course so that TWA remains constant, namely the programmed value, regardless if auto-TWA was enable before the scheduled command is triggered, this also over wind update

Here's my understanding...

AUTO TWA ON (Boat steers to the wind).
Programmed new course.
Boat changes to new course and then continues on new TWA to the wind.

AUTO TWA OFF (Boat stay on compass heading).
Programmed new TWA.
Boat changes to new TWA and continues on new straight line course.
