Experimental investigation and intelligent control of the magnus anti-rolling device for ship stability at zero speed
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2024

Under zero-speed conditions, ships are particularly susceptible to the effects of waves, which directly impact the safety of the vessel. A ship anti-rolling device based on the Magnus effect is designed to mitigate rolling motions across a full range of speeds, thereby enhancing the vessel's stability. This study presents an experimental investigation and intelligent control of Magnus anti-rolling devices aimed at enhancing ship stability at zero speed. The test setup, intelligent control algorithm, and experimental procedures specifically tailored for evaluating the Magnus anti-rolling device were designed. Following this, a comprehensive analysis was conducted to assess the effects of different cylinder geometries, swinging speeds, initial roll angles, and control methods on the anti-rolling characteristics of the device. Results demonstrate that the intelligent control method achieves an average anti-rolling efficiency of 89%. Additionally, the optimised geometric model of the Magnus anti-rolling device exhibits improved anti-rolling efficiency relative to the original model. The study confirms the stability and robustness of the intelligent Magnus anti-rolling device and suggests future research directions for practical applications aboard full-scale vessels in complex marine environments.
