CONTROL OF REMOTELY OPERATED UNDERWATER VEHICLE USING MODEL PREDICTIVE CONTROL
Main Article Content
This paper focuses on application of model predictive control on attitude control of remotely operated underwater vehicle. These vehicles are used in scientific, defence and oceanography applications. Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) considered in this paper is nonlinear model and complex. MPC is applied on ROV model to track in desired set point trajectories in the presence of uncertainties. Simulation has been carried out in MATLAB environment. Model Predictive Control has given significantly good results compared to PID, Adaptive and Variable structure control.
