On the heuristic based electronic control of marine cycloidal propeller

The design and feasibility of electronically controlled Marine Cycloidal Propeller (MCP) by implementing heuristic-based approach is demonstrated. Adding closed-loop control enhances performance. This is shown by simulation. The chances of improving efficiency are more in electronically controlled MCP, as pitch angle of each blade can be independently controlled. Multiple configurations of MCP can be anchored within the same model without changing hardware. Simulations are used to finalize the technical specifications of the system. Experimental results demonstrate the acceptable trajectory generation (using online feedback) and synchronizations of all instruments.
