If the DPS is activated on a ship, the compensation of the side forces (wind and current) acting on the ship takes place with the help of its own propeller pods and propellers. Viewpoint reference sensors, combined with wind sensors, motion detectors, and gyroscopes, provide a computer program with information about the ship’s position and lateral forces’ strength and direction.
The computer program contains a mathematical model of the ship, which contains information about the current wind, waves, and the position of the ship’s engines. From this data and the sensor information, the program calculates the thrusters’ steering angles and their thrust to compensate for the movement.
Dynamic positioning can either be absolute, then the ship is held at a fixed point above the ground, or relative to a moving object such as a ship or submersible. You can also keep the ship at a favorable angle to wind direction, waves, and current. An application together with an anchor system is possible.
