Abstract: In switched-control methodology which integrates several controllers handling different environmental conditions for dynamic positioning (DP) systems in marine vessels, the supervisor uses the estimated wave peak frequency (WPF) to classify the existing environmental condition so as to switch to the appropriate controller. The WPF is assumed to be same as the peak frequency of the vessel's response spectrum at wave frequency estimated by Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) of the measured position and heading. Using a short window width leads to error in the WPF estimates whereas a longer width causes significant time lag in control activation. This paper addresses the effect of uncertainty in the estimation of WPF by FFT on the reliability of the switched-controller based DP vessel. The probability of the supervisor switching to a wrong controller due to WPF estimation error is first evaluated for four different sea states. The failure probabilities of the system with and without WPF uncertainty are then evaluated and compared. Numerical simulation based on a supply vessel shows that the failure probability of the switched-controller DP system due to the uncertainty in the estimated WPF by FFT did not increase much compared to the failure probability of a perfect switched-controller DP system.
