POSITIONING OF VERTICAL OVERLOADING SENSORS FOR HYDROFOIL SHIP CONTROL
- 1 Institute of Transportation Issues after N.S.Solomenko of the Russian Science Academy
High-speed crafts’ reliability as well as its passenger’s comfort and safety are closely related to the craft’s dynamics on sea waves. The resultant dynamics are governed by the quality of the motion control system and its capacity for quality kinematic data acquisition. Herein, we propose a novel method for determining accelerometers’ mounting positions within a hydrofoil ship. This method eliminates interference from the output of accelerometers and provides the capability of determining the amplification coefficients of the second derivative with respect to the height of the ship’s motion.
