An LTP/LPV approach to orbit control of spacecraft on elliptical orbits

Abstract

The problem of orbit control for spacecraft on elliptical orbits is analysed and an approach to the design of optimal constant gain controllers for the periodic dynamics of relative motion is proposed. In particular, it is shown how the proposed approach can guarantee closed loop stability and optimal performance both in the case of circular and elliptical orbits.
