Robust Adaptive Trajectory Tracking Control of Underactuated Surface Vessel in Fields of Marine Practice

To enhance the control system robustness of an underactuated surface vessel with model uncertainties and environmental disturbances, a robust adaptive trajectory tracking algorithm based on proportional integral (PI) sliding mode control and the backstepping technique is proposed. In this algorithm, a continuous adaptive term is constructed to reduce the chattering magenta phenomenon of the system due to the sliding mode surface, and the backstepping technique is employed to force the ship position and the orientation on the desired values. In addition, we have proved the Lyapunov stability of the closed-loop system under the discontinuous environment disturbances or the thruster discontinuity. Finally, numerical simulations are performed to demonstrate the effectiveness of this novel methodology.
