Optimal Orbit Transfer with ON-OFF Actuators using a Closed Form Optimal Switching Scheme
The problem of optimal trajectory planning and control for orbit transfer with on-off actuators is considered in this paper. The emphasis is on finding an approximate closed-form solution for a range of initial conditions but with marginal number of online computations. In order to achieve this goal, the problem is initially formulated in a general form, that is, to find the optimal switching schedule between different modes in a switching system. Afterward, a simple scheme for solving the problem without enforcing a specific mode sequence or a number of switching is introduced. Two representative problems are presented wherein optimal path planning is achieved with on-off actuators for control. Numerical results and analysis demonstrate the potential of the developed method.
