This paper develops and optimisation technique based on simulated annealing (SA). It outlines conventional SA theory and then describes a variation which has been called "segmented simulated annealing" (SSA). SSA is a method which selects the best results from numerous conventional SA runs where each SA starts at a different point in the search space. Conventional SA and SSA are compared by applying these techniques to the optimisation of two decoupled sliding mode controllers for a submarine application. These results are also compared with hand-tuned responses, which show that these optimisation techniques are more convenient to use than conventional hand-tuning methods.
