Abstract [en]

For any small company or research group in offshore renewable energy, the costs to invest into Remotely Operate Vehicles (ROVs) for offshore operations are highly significant. There is however a potential to adapt and equip Observation Class ROVs (OCROVs) in order to make them perform light tasks, such as cable connection. OpenROV is a small and light OCROV with open source software, making it easy to implement tools, such as an autopilot. In this paper a model of the autopilot is presented. To be tested, it needs a model of the thrusters of the OpenROV. Those thrusters are hence tested, modelled in Simulink, and the experimental results are compared to the Matlab model.
