The article presents methods of roll motion compensation, the majority of which have been used on ships for many years. Although they are not capable of reducing permanently the error to zero, their potential has still not been used to the full. The operational efficiency of roll motion compensators can be improved using control systems. Research activities are in progress to check the applicability of advanced control methods making use of modern computer techniques. Some of them are mentioned in this paper.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.09.03.14}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Marine Controllers, Roll Stabilizer, Fin Stabilizer, Nonlinear Process, Multivariable Dynamic Process, Roll Motion, Computer Techniques, Anti-Roll Tanks} }
