Prediction Control Systems in Marine Applications
Times cited (SCOPUS): 1
ABSTRACT: The paper presents one of the modern control methods used for steering of the ship motion. The different automatic systems used to navigate the vessels are described at the beginning. Next, prediction control methodology is presented and multidimensional MPC regulator applied to steering of the training ship is shown as a technical product. Tests results from the real-time experiments with the mentioned controller are presented at the end of the article.
