Abstract
The high feedback gains employed by current active roll stabilisation systems result in control surface cavitation and excessive machinery activity, both of which contribute significantly to the noise radiated by the ship. To circumvent this difficulty, a reduced noise mode of operation is proposed. A design procedure incorporating modern control theory as the major tool in the selection of feedback gains for ship roll stabilisation is presented. The procedure is applied to the reduced noise mode, but may be readily adapted to controller design for other modes of operation.
