Zero-speed fin stabilizer is applied to reduce the roll motion of ships at zero speed. This paper aims to explore the control strategy of zero-speed fin stabilizer through a composite method of theoretical analysis, simulations and tank tests. The hydrodynamic force model is established using analytical approach and a simplified model is obtained by fitting the CFD simulation data. The control strategy of zero-speed fin stabilizer is obtained based on disturbance and compensation by analyzing
more &raquo; ... e phase matching relationship between the wave disturbance, the roll motion of the ship, the movement of the fin and the fin-induced hydrodynamic force. Simulations and water tank tests are performed to verify the effectiveness and feasibility of the obtained control strategies. The results of simulations and tank tests show that the obtained control strategies of zero-speed fin stabilizer based on disturbance and compensation are effective and practical. The proposed method provides theoretical and experimental support for engineering application, and can also be a reference for the controller design of zero-speed fin stabilizers.
