Wind Disturbance Suppression in Autopilot Design

Environmental conditions affects ship’s course. Hence, it affects velocity, and efficiency of fuel consumption, which is an important research topic nowadays. Therefore, it is important to take it into account in the design of ship’s autopilots. In this paper a method is proposed to compensate for wind’s influence, which is based on wavelet transform by…
