Use of Malkin's theorem for satellite stability in the presence of light pressure

By: Whisnant, J.M.; Anand, D.K.;

1967 / IEEE

Description

This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' Use of Malkin's theorem for satellite stability in the presence of light pressure ' Stability of satellites subjected to persistent perturbations is examined using Malkin's theorem. Expressions are presented for distrubing torqnes about all three spacecraft axes due to light pressure. Malkin's theorem is shown to be a valuable design tool for satellite attitude control.
