A factorized Nonlinear Generalized Minimum Variance (NGMV) control law is developed for a combined roll and yaw motion compensation using rudders and fins. The nonlinear model used for control design includes the non-minimum phase interaction from rudder to roll motion, and the dynamics from fins to yaw motion. This controller is developed using the polynomial approach to ensure that the non-minimum phase system remains stable in closed-loop. The effectiveness of the approach is demonstrated on a simulated nonlinear ship model.
