DESIGN PROCEDURES FOR A SURFACE SHIP STEERING CONTROL SYSTEM
The paper presents in some detail, the procedure developed for stabilizing and compensating a surface ship heading control system. The unique aspects of this design procedure are: 1) it inherently takes into account the major non-linearity of the system which is the rudder rate limit, 2) it recognizes the need for low pass filtering to remove broadband sources of noise, 3) it contains on-line adaptive filtering to remove the high magnitude, narrow-band portion of the seaway noise, and 4) it allows one to rapidly and easily determine preliminary estimates of all compensation and stability parameters.
