Passive output feedback and observer based autopilots: A comparative study

By Marit Paulsen and Olav Egeland


Two methods for course-keeping of a ship are studied where no measurements of the yaw rate are available. The two methods are a passive output feedback controller and a controller-observer structure. A comparison with special attention to stability and wave filtering properties, is provided. Finally, a case study of a ship autopilot is included
