According to increase environmental pollutions and fuel costs, The study of energy saving in the ship is proceeding actively. PCS is pump control system for cooling system in the ship to improve the energy efficiency by controling rotation speed of sea water pump, fresh water pump and position of 3way valve. In this paper, we develop the PCS simulator that has an environment similar to the cooling system of the actual vessel to ensure reliability of the PCS. Also, PC-based control and data storage system for PCS simulator is developed. To develop this system, National Instrument's cDAQ and LabVIEW are used. Finally, confirm the behavior of the simulator by analyzing the saving data.
