Abstract

The paper is concerned with a dynamic positioning system for a semi-submersible platform model with steerable thrusters. Three different type of H controllers were designed to control its position using steerable thrusters, and the performance of the controllers was compared in model experiments. The controller showing the best performance was expanded to a gain scheduled controller, and model tests were carried out. The controller could control the position and heading angle of the platform stably under disturbance by waves and current.
