Abstract

The wheel spin-up for space craft reorientation using a momentum transfer technique is limited by the amount of available satellite power, and by the allowed time period for the maneuver. There fore, determination of the de sired spin-up strategy and acquisition time constant are primary is sues in a momentum transfer maneuver. In this study, an analytical method to deter mine an appropriate wheel spin-up scheme and the acquisition time constant is developed and com pared to numerical simulations and show excellent agreements.
