Multi-level predictive control for energy management of hybrid ships in the presence of uncertainty and environmental disturbances


"In this paper, a control methodology is proposed to address the problem of energy management in hybrid ships in the presence of disturbances applied by the surrounding environment and taking the uncertainties within the ship model into account. Nonlinear Robust Tube-Based Model Predictive Control (NRTB-MPC) is adopted to control the ship speed and calculate the demanded energy for propelling the s..." [More...]
