Feedback Stabilization of High-Speed Planing Vessels by a Controllable Transom Flap

Abstract

This paper focuses on the mitigation of porpoising instability of high-speed planing vessels using controllable transom flap and dynamic feedback. A control oriented model that captures both steady-state and dynamic characteristics is presented and used to facilitate the model-based control design. A nonlinear controller is developed based on the feedback… (More)
