Abstract • Controls the engine speed of the watercraft • High rpm can shorten the life span of motor • Prevents engine from stalling • Achieved by changing the fuel to air ratio
Possible Solutions • PID Controller • Fuzzy Logic • Stochastic and Adaptive Control
Fuzzy Logic Control • Easier to implement since g function is non-linear • Helps define a range of values for g function • Two inputs: Engine Reference Torque & Speed • One output: Fuel/mass ratio
Fuzzy Logic Control Rule Table Surface Map
Outputs Acceleration = 0.5m/s2
Outputs Acceleration = 2m/s2
Possible Improvements • More sophisticated fuzzy control logic • Control the Air mass in the cylinders • Include a PID controller to reduce the response time • Insert pressure sensors on the propellers to estimate the load torque
Conclusion • Successfully simulated the desired control system • Designed an innovative control system using fuzzy logic, despite the lack of the engine’s transfer functions
