Robust control of ROV/AUVs
MetadataShow full item record
In this project a robust adaptive controller has been developed for Minerva, NTNU's research ROV. The controller was tested in simulation using Matlab/Simulink with a mathematical model of the vessel. It was also tested in a practical experiment at sea, with the ROV Minerva. The simulations, the control system performs very well. The results from the practical experiment are promising, but several improvements are necessary before the system works satisfactory. The single factor which is believed to degrade the perfomance the most is an error in the mapping between thrust force and rotational speed.
