This paper presents a model based experimental investigation to demonstrate the usefulness of an active damping strategy to manage fluid sloshing motion in spacecraft tanks. The active damping strategy is designed to reduce the degrading impact on maneuvering and pointing performance via a force feedback strategy. Many problems have been encountered until now, such as instability of the closed loop system, excessive consumption in the attitude propellant or problems for engine re-ignition in… 

Propellant Slosh Force and Mass Measurement

Electrical capacitance tomography (ECT) is used to instrument a demonstration tank containing kerosene and it is demonstrated that ECT can, in real time, measure propellant mass to better than 1% of total in a range of gravity fields, and accurately track propellant centre of mass (CoM).

Parametric Robust Structured Control Design

A new approach to parametric robust controller design is presented, where controllers of arbitrary order and structure are computed which minimize the worst-case H∞ norm over a pre-specified set of uncertain parameters.
