Comparative Experiments in the Dynamics and Model-Based Control of Marine Thrusters

  title={Comparative Experiments in the Dynamics and Model-Based Control of Marine Thrusters},
  author={Louis L. Whitcomb},
This paper examines dynamical models for bladedpropeller type marine thrusters. Previously reported thruster dynamics models are reviewed, and a new simplified model is proposed. Experimental testing of both the transient and steady-state performance of a marine thruster corroborates previously reported data, validates the simplified thruster model, and raises new questions.
