STUDY ON THE INHERENT STABILITY AND THE CONTROLLABILITY IN THE LONGITUDINAL MOTION OF THE HYDROFOIL CRAFT WITH FULLY SUBMERGED FOILS

In this paper the longitudinal motion of a hydrofoil craft with fully submerged foils is discussed. The authors investigate how the principal dimension such as the position of the foil installation or the centre of gravity affect the inherent stability, and the determination of the principal dimension is shown from the view point of inherent stability. It is desirable to maintain the craft in the stable condition when manually controlled. The robustness of the control system for the longitudinal motion is investigated, it is important for the control system, whether the controllability is maintained or not when the characteristics of the craft in longitudinal motion is varied from various caused. It is shown that the robustness can be maintained if the control system is designed with optimal regulator theory.
