This paper analyzes attitude control of small satellites to determine optimal large angle attitude maneuvers for gravity gradient stabilized with three reaction wheels. The satellite attitude dynamics equations were solved by using Euler parameters to determine the gravity gradient torque and wheel motor torque. The necessary conditions for optimum solutions subject to the performance index were obtained using Pontryagin's principle. Methods for calculating the optimal solution of the minimum… CONTINUE READING
