In order to control the excessive vibration of offshore platforms under wave excitations, an H2 control algorithm was presented in this paper. In the present study, noise terms for generating filtered wave loading and accounting for model uncertainty are separated. In addition, in H2 optimization problem, AMD’s capacities are considered by setting the limits of AMD stroke and maximum input control force. And the formulations of such algorithm are described. In order to investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed method, a numerical example applied to an offshore platform is presented in this paper. The numerical results demonstrate that the proposed algorithm is effective in reducing the vibration of offshore structure when there are some uncertainties in building the mathematical model of the structure. In addition, AMD designed by the proposed method can keep its operation by choosing appropriate feedback gain among several gain candidates based on the AMD limits.
