DEVELOPMENT OF ANTI-SWAY CONTROL SYSTEM FOR CONTAINER CRANES

Requirements for the automatic operation of container cranes have been increasing. Anti-sway control and positioning control of a loaded container are key technologies to achieve automatic operation. In view of this, optimal feedback control has been developed by applying LQ theory, a sway sensor using image processing technology and skew control with movable sheave mechanisms which are small traverses on trollies. As a result, precise and smooth control of the anti-sway and positioning system was achieved for the automation of container cranes.
