Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

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.
