Using a High Order Sliding Modes for Diving Control a Torpedo Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

Résumé : In this paper, a High Order Sliding Modes Control (HOSMC) is used to control TAIPAN, a torpedo shaped AUV from LIRMM, France. The implementation of a Second Order Sliding Mode controller in this system is the main contribution of this work. Sliding Mode Control (SMC) is adequate for controlling AUVs, since it offers robustness in the presence of uncertainties parameters and environmental disturbances, however the main drawback is the chattering effects that stimulates high frequency vibration that can damage the actuators. HOSMC control preserves the properties of standard SMC and removes the chattering effects. The design of Proportional Derived (PD), SMC and HOSMC controller for control TAIPAN depth are described. A comparative study between the control laws is presented. The nonlinear hydrodynamic model of TAIPAN is used in the numerical simulations. Simulation results, that enlighten performance of the automatic controllers are showed.
