- | Satellite stabilization mode means maintaining a zero angular velocity. This mode is necessary, for example, to obtain clear images or transfer them to a ground receiving point, when the data transmission time is long and the satellite antenna is not allowed to deviate from the ground receiving point. The theory also described in this lesson is suitable for maintaining any desired angular velocity, and not just zero, for tasks such as tracking a moving object. | + | Satellite stabilization mode means maintaining a zero angular velocity.

- | You can change the satellite’s angular velocity using flywheels, jet engines, electromagnetic coils, and gyrodyne engines. In this example, we consider the control of the control moment using the flywheel. The action of this device is based on the law of conservation of angular momentum. For example, when the flywheel engine spins in one direction, the spacecraft (SC), respectively, begins to rotate in the other direction under the action of the same moment of unwinding, but directed in the opposite direction in accordance with the Newton's third law. If, under the influence of external factors, the spacecraft began to turn in a certain direction, it is enough to increase the speed of rotation of the flywheel in the same direction and the unwanted rotation of the spacecraft will stop, instead of the satellite, the rotational moment will "take" the flywheel. Receive information about the angular velocity of the satellite will be using an angular velocity sensor. In this example, we will look at how to calculate control commands for the flywheel for the satellite to stabilize or maintain the required angular velocity from the indications of the angular velocity sensor and data on the speed of the flywheel. | + | You can change the satellite’s angular velocity using flywheels, jet engines, electromagnetic coils, and gyrodyne engines. In this example we consider the control over the control moment using the flywheel. The action of this device is based on the Law of conservation of angular momentum. For example, when the flywheel engine spins in one direction, the spacecraft (SC), respectively, begins to rotate in the other direction. It happens under the action of the same unwinding moment, but directed in the opposite side in accordance with the Newton's Third Law. If, under the influence of external factors, the spacecraft begins to turn in a certain direction, it is enough to increase the rotation speed of the flywheel in the same direction. So, the unwanted rotation of the spacecraft will stop because the flywheel will "take" the rotational moment instead of the satellite. . The information about the angular velocity of the satellite will be received by use of angular velocity sensor. In this example, we consider how to calculate control commands for the flywheel from the indications of the angular velocity sensor and data on the speed of the flywheel. It is needed for the satellite to stabilize or maintain the required angular velocity |

- | For the operation of the algorithm is not necessary to know the exact value. $\frac{{{J}_{s}}+{{J}_{m}}}{{{J}_{m}}}$, because the flywheel cannot instantly set the required angular velocity. Also, the measurement noise interferes with the control process: the satellite’s angular velocity measured with an angular velocity sensor is not accurate, since there is always a constant error and measurement noise in measurements. It should be noted that measurements of the angular velocity and issuing commands to the flywheel occur with some minimum time step. All these limitations lead to the fact that $k_d$ experimentally selected or built detailed computer models that take into account all the above limitations.
