Abstract : In this paper, the problem of designing a Position Mooring (PM) system for a barge ship is addressed. A mathematical model of a system comprising a barge ship and mooring system is derived. Hydrodynamic coefficients of the low speed model for PM ship are identified by suitable experiments. A PID control scheme is implemented to achieve PM for the vessel by changing the tension of the mooring ropes. The proposed strategy is finally tested on station keeping, and desired positions of a 1/50 scale model ship are obtained.
