The Ship Track Keeping With Roll Reduction Using a Multiple-States PD Controller on the Rudder Operation
Abstract:The paper presents a nonlinear hydrodynamic numerical model with multiple-states proportional-derivative (PD) controllers for simulating the ship's tracking in random sea. By way of the rudder operation, the track-keeping ability of the PD controller on the ship is examined using the line-of-sight (LOS) guidance technique. Furthermore, the roll-reduction function using the rudder control is also included in the PD controller. From the present simulation results, the single-input multiple-output (SIMO) heading/roll PD controller including LOS technique developed here indeed works, either for the roll reduction or for track keeping while the ship is maneuvering in waves.
