Fuzzy Fast Time Simulation Model of Ship's Manoeuvring
1 Maritime University of Szczecin, Szczecin, Poland
ABSTRACT: The paper presents a concept of fuzzy FTS (fast time simulation) model of twin-screw ship manoeuvring autonomously (without tugs) in confined waters. The conceptual model has been based on the fuzzy logic controller with expert database formed by manoeuvres obtained from the real-time non-autonomous trials classified in relation to expert manoeuvre impact on ship's advance, lateral and rotation speed and her position in reference to the present ship status. Exemplary pitch controller for vessels with two propellers at specified hydro-meteorological conditions has been presented.
