Increasing underwater vehicle autonomy by reducing energy consumption
Chyba, M., Haberkorn, T., Smith, R.N. , Singh, S.B., & Choi, S.K. (2009) Increasing underwater vehicle autonomy by reducing energy consumption. Ocean Engineering, 36(1), pp. 62-73.
In this paper, we concern ourselves with finding a control strategy that minimizes energy consumption along a trajectory connecting two given configurations. We develop an algorithm, based on our previous work with the time optimal problem, which provides implementable control strategies that are energy efficient. We find an interesting correlation between the duration of these trajectories and the optimal duration. We present the algorithm, control strategy and experimental results from our test-bed vehicle.
