Control Problems for Planar Maneuvers of a Spacecraft With Fuel Slosh3rd International Conference on Nonlinear Problems in Aviation and Aerospace (2000)
"We study control problems for planar maneuvers of a spacecraft with fuel slosh in a zero gravity environment. The spacecraft is represented as a rigid body and fuel slosh dynamics are included using a single vibrating mass model. Both pendulum and spring-mass analogies are considered. The control inputs are defined by a thrust along the spacecraft's longitudinal axis, a transverse body fixed force and a pitching moment about the center of mass of the spacecraft; the slosh dynamics are assumed to be unactuated. The control objective is to design a feedback controller so that the controlled spacecraft accomplishes a given planar maneuver, that is a change in the translational velocity vector and the attitude of the spacecraft, while suppressing the slosh mode. We formulate and analyze mathematical models that reflect this control objective."
