Stable fraction approach and attitude-control of a spinning satellite using a gyrotorquer

Document Type



The problem of joint stabilization and tracking of a spinning satellite system in addition to its regulation are considered. The rational fractional approach is used to obtain coprime equations in a multivariate setting for both coupled and decoupled models. Parametrized compensators are obtained for regulation and stabilization with tracking cases. Simulation results are presented to show the accomplishment of attitude control in different settings with simple control inputs.
