ATTITUDE CONTROL OF MULTIPLE RIGID BODY SPACECRAFT WITH FLEXIBLE HINGE JOINTS

2010-02-18
Control algorithm is developed for a satellite with flexible appendages to achieve a good pointing performance. Detailed modeling activity was carried out that consists of sensor and actuator models, disturbances and system dynamics. Common hardware found in the spacecraft such as reaction wheels, gyroscopes, star trackers etc. were included in the model. Furthermore, the Newton-Euler method is employed for the derivation of multi-body equations of motion. Proper metrics such as accuracy, jitter and stability are used to evaluate the pointing performance of two control schemes: quaternion feedback controller, and linear quadratic regulator. Simulation results are given and discussed.

Angular acceleration assisted stabilization of a-2 DOF gimbal platform
Öztürk, Taha; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
In this thesis work construction of the angular acceleration signal of a 2-DOF gimbal platform and use of this signal for improving the stabilization performance is aimed. This topic can be divided into two subtopics, first being the construction of angular acceleration and the second being the use of this information in a way to improve system performance. Both problems should be tackled in order to get satisfactory results. The most important output of this work is defined as the demonstration of the impr...
GPS-Based Real-Time Orbit Determination of Low Earth Orbit Satellites Using Robust Unscented Kalman Filter
Karslıoğlu, Mahmut Onur; Erdogan, Eren; Pamuk, Onur (2017-11-01)
In this research, a novel algorithm for real-time orbit determination (RTOD) is presented using the robust unscented Kalman filter (RUKF) with global positioning system (GPS) group and phase ionospheric correction (GRAPHIC) observables. To increase the reliability of the solution, a robust approach is included in the UKF to cope with the bad, invalid, or degraded measurements leading to the divergence or inaccurate output of the filter. Robustness is provided by making the filter less sensitive to faulty me...
Supervisory control and formal methods for distributed systems
İnan, Kemal (1992-08-28)
A brief introductory exposure for logical discrete event system models is presented. Based on a specific version of this model tailored to supervisory control, some of the mainstream supervisory control problems are formulated in a unified framework. Formal methods used in software engineering has certain computational and structural similarities to supervisory control and unlike the latter, is closely connected to realistic and widespread practical applications. Formal specification, verification, impleme...
An SRWNN-based approach on developing a self-learning and self-evolving adaptive control system for motion platforms
Ari, Evrim Onur; Kocaoglan, Erol (2016-02-01)
In this paper, a self-recurrent wavelet neural network (SRWNN)-based indirect adaptive control architecture is modified for performing speed control of a motion platform. The transient behaviour of the original learning algorithm has been improved by modifying the learning rate updates. The contribution of the proposed modification has been verified via both simulations and experiments. Moreover, the performance of the proposed architecture is compared with robust RST designs performed on a similar benchmar...
