Satellite position and attitude control by on-off thrusters considering mass change

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper deals with the two-dimensional position and attitude control of a satellite by on-off thrusters which are fixed to the satellite's body. Since the thrusters generate constant and unilateral forces, the equations of motion form nonholonomic constraint and cannot be integrated. Furthermore, the satellite's mass changes due to the fuel consumption. Utilizing Fresnel integrals and the partial integrals, we derive the approximate analytic solution considering the satellite's mass change to achieve a specified satellite's position and attitude. The accuracy of the proposed approximate technique is verified by applying it to a condition considered in SLIM project of JAXA.
