Sun-Synchronous Orbit Transfer Scheme Based on Solar Sail
Institute of Precision Guidance and Control, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi'an 710072, China
Aiming at the sun-synchronous orbit transfer task of the micro-nano satellite solar sail, the method of combining the weighted control law and the solar sail optimal direction is used for maneuvering the orbit, and a segmentation control strategy is proposed to control the local time of the descending node of target orbit. The theoretical and simulation results show that the sun-synchronous orbit transfer task can be completed by using the micro-nano satellite solar sail, and the local time of the descending node is consistent with the initial value. In addition, the local time of the descending node has a certain impact on the orbit maneuvering efficiency of the solar sail, and the task can be completed by using the segmentation control strategy on orbits with different local time of the descending node.
