Abstract

This paper presents the result of analysis on manoeuvring control system for pusher barge in inland waterway by using Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) and Active Force Control (AFC). The study was carried out with two main objectives; firstly is to develop a fast time domain simulation program as a ‘tool’ for the manoeuvring control analysis. The analysis will be used to predict the manoeuvring characteristics and control system at the early stage of design. Secondly, to evaluate the difference of control system for manoeuvrability of pusher barge in inland waterways for both conditions of Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) and Active Force Control (AFC). The paper begins with the literature review on manoeuvring characteristics, the pusher barge system and definition of control system as generally and focusing on Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) and Active Force Control (AFC). The simulation program will be used to manipulate the data calculated. The result and analysis of this study will be presented in order to highlight the effectiveness of manoeuvring characteristics and control system for pusher barge. Finally, the paper proposes the effectiveness of using Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) and Active Force Control (AFC) as a system that use for control pusher barge in inland waterway.
