DETERMINING ROBUST PARAMETERS IN STABILIZING SET OF BACKSTEPPING BASED NONLINEAR CONTROLLER FOR SHIP COURSE KEEPING
Main Article Content
The authors have addressed an important topic that is needed for backstepping algorithm to guarantee the robust performance of the closed-loop system. A novel method of determining parameters was presented based on ship maneuvering empirical knowledge and closed-loop shaping theory, and theoretical proof had shown the uniformly asymptotic stability of an established nonlinear Nomoto model. However, the following important points are suggested for the improvement of this paper.
