Satellite Attitude Dynamics and Control

Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur and NPTEL via Swayam

Overview

This course first introduces the rotational kinematics which is essential for implementing the satellite attitude control. This is followed by comprehensive introduction to the subject matters of satellite/rigid body rotational dynamics. Finally, the attitude control of satellites using reaction wheels, control moment gyros, magnetic/Lorentz force actuators, and thrusters are introduced.
