Floating Oil Platform Model with Dynamic Positioning and Reference System

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 1196)


The article describes the process of construction and testing a floating offshore drilling platform model with focus on cooperation of its diverse subsystems in order to stabilise the position and control the movement of the platform. In real-life applications, advanced off-shore oil-rigs are indeed floating without any scaffolding or concrete basis, so the waves and shore current continuously disrupt their position. Since the place of drilling is fixed, those movements are able to damage or even break the drill, which leads to serious environment contamination by the emerging oil. This paper considers PID controller as a dynamic positioning system with a reference system based on image recognition.
