CONTROL OF THE WAVES IN A TOWING TANK WITH THE USE OF A BLACK-BOX MODEL
The paper describes an adaptive control system of the waves, implemented in the Ship Design and Research Centre, CTO S.A. The purpose of generating the waves in the towing tank is the modelling of the environmental conditions during hydrodynamic model tests. The tests are performed on scale models of towed or free running ships, anchored structures like oil rigs or bottommounted structures, e.g. wind turbines. In the towing tank of CTO S.A., the waves are generated using a flap-type wavemaker with hydraulic drive. The adaptive control system includes gain scheduling and Black-Box model. It has been developed and implemented using the 32-bit embedded system and computer application (C#.NET). The Black-Box model was proposed as a simple solution allowing compensating the hydromechanical phenomena affecting the generated waves, i.e. disintegration, reflection, damping and nonlinear energy transfer. The solution proved to be sufficient to generate required wave spectra with expected accuracy in a user-friendly manner.
