Abstract

A longitudinal trajectory tracking control system based on feedback linearization and receding horizon control is proposed for the recently refined dynamics model of the High-speed Supercavitating Underwater Vehicle. The supercavitation bubble surrounding the body is not just reduces the drag but it is responsible for the undesired switched, nonlinear and delay dependent behavior caused by the phenomena known as planing. The objective of the control design is to avoid that undesired state with limited actuator deflections even when the cavity surface is noisy. Special attention Is made to understand the complex and novel dynamics of the vehicle to explore the maneuvering range.
