Improving Quality of Regulation of a Nonlinear MIMO Dynamic Plant
AbstractThe paper presents a robust two-degrees of freedom control system for a multi-input, multi-output (MIMO) nonlinear dynamic process. There are discussed the advantages of the model following control (MFC) structure for MIMO systems, its stability and robustness properties and a method for synthesis of a multi‑controller structure of the MFC model loop. The problems under study are exempliﬁed by synthesis of a position and yaw angle control system for a 3DOF nonlinear mathematical model of a drillship, where the MFC structure is used to reduce effects of the impact of the sea current and wind forces on the ship's hull.
