Abstract

Orbiting artificial satellites naturally tend to accumulate electrostatic charge which may in some circumstances cause malfunctions in measuring instruments and other devices on the satellite body and ultimately lead to difficulties in satellite operation. In this paper, we investigate the possibility of the use of the Lorentz force, which acts on charged satellite when it is moving through the magnetic field, as a means of satellite attitude control. We first analyze the stability of the motion and then propose novel attitude control method using the Lorentz force.
