In this paper a methodology to implement and operate an
adaptive controller based in a GPC algorithm is described.
The system comprises a data acquisition system
associated to a software based tool on a PC computer.
Such instruments measure yaw motions and compute
relevant process variables to identify ship model
parameters in order to correct GPC control algorithm
according a user criterion by means of a gain scheduling
