|In general, a series of ship steering motions is composed of a combination of translational motions and rotational motions of the ship. In particular, a series of rotational motions frequently occurs in narrow areas such as ports and canal zones. In this paper, a method was suggested for composing an integrated control algorithm based on the jog dial as a command instrument for rotational motion control. In order to realize the rotational motions, several algorithms were suggested for generating rotational commands, for selecting motion variables, for choosing reference input values for the motion variables, for computing required accelerations and thrusts, and for allocating thrusts to actuators. A simulation program was compiled to execute simulations for three rotational motions. Finally, the effectiveness of the suggested method was verified by analyzing the simulation results.
