A Comparative Study of Different Control Structures for Flight Control with New Results
(Peer reviewed; Book; Chapter, 2018-10-24)
This paper presents several different control structures that facilitate flight control and does a comparison between them. Specifically, this paper considers command-filtered backstepping, nonlinear dynamic inversion (NDI), and a new decoupled approach that decouples the rotational and translational dynamics by estimating the higher order derivatives of the angle of attack and sideslip angle. The ...
Modeling and Attitude Control of Satellites in Elliptical Orbits
(Peer reviewed; Chapter, 2018-11-05)
The attitude determination and control system (ADCS) for spacecraft is responsible for determining its orientation using sensor measurements and then applying actuation forces to change the orientation. This chapter details the different components required for a complete attitude determination and control system for satellites moving in elliptical orbits. Specifically, the chapter details the orbital ...
