DEVELOPMENT OF HYBRID ANTI-ROLLING SYSTEM FOR SHIPS AND SEA EXPERIMENTS

An actively controlled anti-rolling system has been developed to reduce the rolling motion of a ship by the movement of a mass controlled by an actuator. The hybrid type system combines the pendulum-base passive type using a moving mass on an arc-shaped rail, with the active type driven by a relatively small electric motor. Sea experiments were performed with a ship (weight approx 190 tons) to verify the damping effects of the hybrid anti-rolling system. Rolling was reduced to about in beam seas when the ship was stationary.
