Abstract:

Steady-state and total decoupling schemes for multivariable systems are used to develop two automatic control systems for the vertical motion of a fictitious submarine. A linearized mathematical model is derived from a non-linear model in six degrees of freedom. Both designs are simulated and evaluated with respect to performance, simplicity of design procedure, and grade of complexity. The controller, designed via the steady-state decoupling method, is implemented in the non-linear model and tested under various operating conditions. Author
