However, it is worth noting that when designing the controller, the above references do not consider actuator input nonlinearities such as dead-zone and backlash and ignore the actuator dynamic characteristics and nonlinear factors; instead, they consider that the actual deflection angle is equal to the rudder angle instruction [8].
This paper primarily analyzes the dynamics features about the linear suspension motion of the submarine, models the nonlinear relationship between the rudder angle and the posture change, and designs the controller to dynamic feedback for the plane angle and the vertical rudder angle according to the conditions of global asymptotic stability controlled by the submarine track and the physical significance controlled by the differential on the nonlinear proportion of the track.
