ESR 1 – Online identification of vessel dynamics in confined inland waterways

Host institution: KU Leuven (BE)
Project title/WP: Online identification of vessel dynamics in confined inland waterways (WP1)
Supervisory board: Prof. P. Slaets (KU Leuven, BE), Prof. J. Swevers (KU Leuven, BE), J. Oggel (NOVATUG, NL)
Objectives:

  • Develop an on- and offline algorithm to estimate states and parameters of the hydrodynamic model of an inland barge
  • Design and implement a sensor setup that is able to identify the hydrodynamic model

Expected Results:

  • Defining parametrized hydrodynamic models
  • Off-line algorithms for hydrodynamic parameter estimation
  • On-line parameter and state estimation algorithms suited for real-time motion prediction.

Planned secondment(s):

  • TU Delft (NL): Gathering experimental data from available scale model vessels (M14-16, secondment mentor: R.R. Negenborn)
  • NOVATUG (NL): Gathering experimental data from a real scale tugboat (M24-26, secondment mentor: J. Oggel)

Enrolment in the Doctoral degree: KU Leuven (BE)
