Paper Title: Set Point Tracking Control of a Remotely Operated Vehicle using Model Predictive Control
M P R Prasad, National Institute of Technology, Kurukshetra, India
This paper considers kinematics and dynamics of Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicle (ROV) to control position, orientation and velocity of the vehicle. Cascade control technique has been applied in this paper. The pole placement technique is used in inner loop of kinematics to stabilize the vehicle motions. Model Predictive control is proposed and applied in outer loop of vehicle dynamics to maintain position and velocity trajectories of ROV. Simulation results carried out on ROV shows the good performance and stability are achieved by using MPC algorithm, whereas sliding mode control loses its stability when ocean currents are high. Implementation of proposed MPC algorithm and stabilization of vehicle motions is the main contribution in this paper.
