Since the shipbuilding industry is at its peak to assimilate the large volume of orders in recent years, the Floating Dock has been an alternative to the dry dock which takes a certain period of time to build. Hence the use of Floating Dock is steadily increasing. Since the Skid Launching System(SLS) is used in Floating Dock, the balancing of the ship while launching is important and achieved by adjusting the Ballast tank of the Floating Dock.
Therefore, in this thesis, a Floating Dock Control Algorithm for SLS is developed based on the real-time monitoring of the on-line interface of VRC(Valve Remote Control), Tank Level & Draft Measuring System and Valve Control algorithm on Simulation Tank Plan. In order to verify the developed system, the system was compared with the measured data, and also inspected by NAFA for its reliability.
The control by the developed Floating Dock Control Application is shown to make the SLS reliable and efficient to operate by optimizing the Ballast Plan Data.
