DEVELOPMENT OF ENERGY SAVING AUTO-PILOT SYSTEM THROUGH STATISTICAL OPTIMAL CONTROL

An energy saving optimal controller based on a statistically identified model of a ship has been developed. An auto-regressive model identifying the ship's dynamics has been structured from real data obtained from the model and full-scale manual or auto-pilot steering experiments. Various potential advantages of the optimal controller over the existing auto-pilot system are outlined.
