SHIP MOTION CONTROL
|D O W N L O A D|
The present book was specifically prepared for students, practitioners and researchers in the fields of control engineering and marine technology. Taking into account that the audience would be fairly mixed, so much effort has been made by the author to set the proper level of the topic presentation.
Nevertheless, the readers of this book are required to have at least some basic knowledge in linear systems/state space models, say within the limits of one provided at the standard undergraduate control courses. The publication contains four major sections; the first three of them are dealing with the key components of a successful vessel motion control system, namely appropriate math models, proper understanding of the performance assessment, and knowledge of the basic limitations that may possibly affect the desired performance in a negative way. The last part of the book addresses the design of control systems.
Among the topics that have been included in the book there are ship dynamics, wave simulation and modeling, vessel motion performance, wave filtering, design of the control system for auto-pilots and for integrated rudder-fin stabilizer, rol stabilization devices, various models of actuators etc. The book will be useful to practicing marine engineers as well as the academic persons involved in the related research activities.
