Abstract: In this paper a Constrained Finite Time Optimal Controller (CFTOC) is designed and applied to the diving and steering problem of an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle. The non–linear model of the AUV is presented and the decoupled linear models for the steering and diving motions of the vehicle are derived, based on certain modeling assumptions and simplifications, while the cruising speed of the vehicle is considered to be small and constant. The proposed control scheme has the merit to take under consideration: a) the mechanical and physical constrains of the AUV, b) uncertainties produced from modeling errors and environmental noise, c) constrains in the motors, and produce an optimal controller for the vehicle that will guarantee the stability of the closed loop system. The proposed CFTO–controller is applied to simulation studies and relevant simulation results are presented that prove the efficacy of the proposed scheme.
