Diesel engines simulation has contributed immensely towards the aim of new evaluation and development. This present work contributes to a better simulation of the transient operation of improving the existing relation. It deals with the parametric consideration of Marine Diesel Engine (MDE) output for maximum operation. A four stroke caterpillar 3516B series MDE with 16 – VTS was used to actualize the work. A well-known model was adopted using temperature approach to obtain efficiencies of the engine. A computer program code named MDEPAC written in visual-basic programming language was developed. The result obtained affirmed that the value of 42.952KW to 1647.84KW of power output and 239.01kN/m2 to 1791.13kN/m2 for mean effective pressure should be maintained to avoid any breakdown of the engine.
