In the paper a velocity-based linearisation approach for the design of a gain-scheduling controller for ship steering is presented. While ship steering and gain-scheduling are well known problems with well-developed solutions, the described method differs from previous approaches to gain-scheduled controller design in that the closed-loop system with nonlinear controller retains properties of the linearised system with linear controller designed in one of the design stages. Stochastic robustness with Monte Carlo simulations is applied to confirm performance of the nonlinear control which was the objective for control design
