An optimum control-based approach for Dynamic Positioning of vessels
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents a solution to the problem of Dynamic Positioning of vessels in Arctic environments, using a finite-horizon optimal control based approach. As the first step, an Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) based non-linear observer is developed for estimating both the vessel states and unknown inputs such as ice load. To perform better set point control and disturbance rejection, a Non-linear Model Predictive Controller (NMPC) is employed for dynamic positioning. Using the developed estimation and control strategies, successful simulation results are obtained. � 2016 IEEE.

Voltage control in distribution networks using current source converter STATCOM based on state feedback controller and Kalman filter Ahmad H.M.S.; Massoud A.M.; Meskin N. ( Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc. , 2018 , Conference Paper)In transmission and Medium-Voltage (MV) distribution systems, the voltage can be controlled by reactive power due to the high X/R ratio of the cables/overhead lines. Maintaining voltage within a fixed limit is critical to ...
