Rational fraction approach and attitude control of spinning satellite using gyrotorquer

Document Type

Conference Proceeding


The problem of joint stabilization and tracking of a spinning satellite system in addition to its regulation are considered. Rational Fractional approach is used to obtain coprime equations in a multivariate setting. Parameterized compensators are obtained for regulation and, simultaneous stabilization and tracking cases. Simulation results are presented to show the accomplishment of attitude control in different settings with simple control inputs.
