    Modeling and Designing Dynamic Positioning System for an Underwater Vehicle

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Hatami Landi, Mohammad (Author) ; Seif, Mohammad Saeed (Supervisor)
    The aim of this study is to design a control system for an autonomous underwater vehicle and evaluate this system for different missions. Due to the non-linear behavior of the target robot, both linear and non-linear behavior of the system was studied. Model Predictive control method has been implemented since it can outline both linear and non-linear controllers. The first non-linear dynamics of this robot, maneuvering equipment, and external disturbances (waves and ocean current) were modeled. Then, to design the linear controller, the equations of motion have been linearized around the working point(cruise speed). In order to analyze both designed controllers, various duties have been...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Dehestani Esfandabadi, Hamid (Author) ; Seif, Mohammad Saeed (Supervisor)
    Generally, Vessels at sea are exposed to water waves. Large displacement of the vessel affects its performance, passengers’ and crews’ activities or duties. Based on the type of the displacement (translational/rotational) and the orientation about the reference axes, floating vessels are collapse onto 6 distinct categories. One of the above-mentioned displacements about the reference axis is rolling motion. Rolling motion is the rotation of the vessel about its longitudinal axis. This displacement may lead the commuters or crews to seasickness. Furthermore, greatness of this displacement increases the probability of damage to the goods.
