Fuel Minimizing Control for Constrained Relative Satellite Orbits
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we study the fuel minimization problem of hovering satellite subject to a practical constraint on the trajectory of the deputy satellite. It is first shown that the constraint condition can be expressed equivalently as maximum flight time inequalities. On this basis, a cost function relating to the fuel burn is formulated. A numerical procedure is developed to solve this fuel minimization problem.
