AUTOMATIC CONTROL OF DIRECTIONALLY UNSTABLE SHIPS

Feedback loops are used to stabilize an unstable hull and provide essentially the same dynamics as for an equivalent stable hull. Simulation tests verify calm water behavior and also indicate rudder behavior in presence of waves. Dead zone is used to reduce rudder motions for the stable hull, and is combined with a special design for the unstable hull.
