Exact Feedback Linearization and Control of Space Station Using CMG

Document Type



Based on feedback linearization theory, an approach to attitude control of a space station using control moment gyros (CMGs) is developed. A linearizing transformation is derived to obtain a simple linear representation of the nonlinear pitch axis dynamics. A feedback control law for trajectory tracking is derived. Extension of this approach to linearization of the coupled yaw and roll axis dynamics and control is presented.
