UKF based in-flight calibration of magnetometers and rate gyros for pico satellite attitude determination

2012-05-01
In this paper an unscented Kalman filter based procedure for the bias estimation of both the magnetometers and the gyros carried onboard a pico satellite, is proposed. At the initial phase, biases of three orthogonally located magnetometers are estimated as well as the attitude and attitude rates of the satellite. During the initial period after the orbit injection, gyro measurements are accepted as bias free since the precise gyros are working accurately and the accumulated gyro biases are negligible. At the second phase estimated constant magnetometer bias components are taken into account and the algorithm is run for the estimation of the gyro biases that are cumulatively increased by time. As a result, six different bias terms for two different sensors are obtained in two stages, where attitude and attitude rates are estimated regularly. For both estimation phases of the procedure an unscented Kalman filter is used as the estimation algorithm. Copyright (C) 2011 John Wiley and Sons Asia Pte Ltd and Chinese Automatic Control Society

Q-Adaptation of SVD-aided UKF Algorithm for Nanosatellite Attitude Estimation
Hacızade, Cengiz; Söken, Halil Ersin; Guler, Demet Cilden (2017-01-01)
In this study, we propose process noise covariance matrix adaptation (Q-adaptation) for the Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) aided Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) algorithm. The main aim is to make the algorithm adaptive against the changes in the process noise covariance. The SVD-aided Adaptive UKF (SaAUKF) estimates the attitude and attitude rate of a nano satellite. We implement the SVD method in the algorithm's first phase using magnetometer and sun sensor measurements. It estimates the attitude of the ...
Phase-sensitive detection of motor fault signatures in the presence of noise
Akin, Bilal; Orguner, Umut; Toliyat, Hamid A.; Rayner, Mark (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008-06-01)
In this paper, a digital signal processor-based phase-sensitive motor fault signature detection technique is presented. The implemented method has a powerful line current noise suppression capability while detecting the fault signatures. Because the line current of inverter-driven motors involve low-order harmonies, high-frequency switching disturbances, and the noise generated by harsh industrial environment, the real-time fault analyses yield erroneous or fluctuating fault signatures. This situation becom...
UKF based on-orbit gyro and magnetometer bias estimation as a part of the attitude determination procedure for a small satellite
Söken, Halil Ersin (2011-12-01)
In this study an unscented Kalman filter (UKF) based magnetometer and gyro bias estimation algorithm is presented as a part of the attitude determination procedure for a small satellite, which has three magnetometers and three gyros as measurement sensors. Differently from the existing studies both magnetometer and gyro biases are estimated as well as the attitude parameters. Kinematics of the satellite is modeled via using quaternion parameterization. In order to enable estimation of all parameters simulta...
