NONLINEAR FEEDBACK CONTROL OF SPACECRAFT SLEW MANEUVERS. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • A polynomial feedback control law for large-angle attitude maneuvers is presented, with a recursive algorithm for calculating the control gains. By formulating the kinematics in terms of Euler parameters, low-order nonlinear controls are found to be adequate, and single- and three-axis maneuvers are demonstrated.
