Due to the wind resistance which acts on the main reflector of large rotary mesh antenna, the correct balancing result of satellite antenna is difficult to be gotten in the ground dynamic balancing test. In order to solve this problem, the dynamic balance method of large rotary mesh antenna which is under the influence of wind resistance in both low pressure environment and standard atmospheric pressure environment on the ground is studied. Based on the theoretical analysis and the experimental data of two-dimensional flow around circular cylinder, a new method of the large rotary mesh antenna wind resistance calculation is proposed, according to the CFD analysis of the three dimensional flow field. Through the dynamic equivalent method, the distributed wind resistance acted on the main reflector of the mesh antenna in the rotating state is equivalent to the principal vector and principal moment of the action point in each quadrant, and then transformed into the eccentric mass on the distribution plane. It provides a feasible and innovative way to estimate the influence of wind resistance on the dynamic balance accuracy of large mesh antenna, so as to compensate the wind resistance effect. Combined with the ground dynamic balancing requirements of a certain type of satellite mesh antenna, the whole finite element model of the mesh antenna is established, the simulation of ground dynamic balancing test is carried out, and the influence of wind resistance on the ground dynamic balancing results of the antenna is analyzed in this study, which provides important data for compensating the influence of wind resistance and ensuring the on-orbit balancing accuracy of the antenna.
Key words: large mesh antenna / dynamic balance test / wind resistance equivalent / flow around circular cylinder
