Title

Control of the attitude system for the UMR SAT project

Abstract

"This thesis presents an attitude control model for the UMR SAT project. The UMR SAT project is a student design project at the University of Missouri-Rolla. This project involves the study of two satellites flying in coupled flight as well as formation flight. The control model includes a guidance law using Lyapunov stability principles and a control logic algorithm with the use of both a magnetic coil actuator and thrusters with a throttle filter. A hybrid controller using both magnetic coils and thrusters is also discussed. The magnetic coil controller and thruster controller were synthesized using a dynamic model without perturbations"--Abstract, leaf iii.
