ABSTRACT

This paper reports results of a preliminary study of an on-orbit advanced robust attitude control experiment using a

Japanese large flexible communication satellite: the Engineering Test Satellite VIII (ETS-VIII). The on-orbit attitude

control experiment is designed to develop a baseline technology for a class of future large flexible spacecraft and earth

observation satellites which require attitude maneuvers using advanced control technology. An important issue is the

design of a reduced-order multi-input multi-output (MIMO) robust controller for a linear parameter varying (LPV)

spacecraft system. We therefore prepared three control laws after tradeoff studies. Among them, in this paper, a linear

time invariant (LTI)-μ controller is presented; it is designed parametrically by decomposing the s/c model into control

modes and residual modes. In μ-synthesis, the varying parameters are treated as structured uncertainty that is stabilized

robustly with unstructured uncertainty by setting the μ-value to less than one. The final controller is LTI-designed

through D-K iteration. The candidate experiment controllers were evaluated using preliminary MATLAB-based

laboratory design and synthesis and full software simulation of onboard algorithms with emulation of the AOCS

hardware. This report presents the outline of this experiment and some spacecraft model features, along with a case

study of the proposed method for ETS-VIII and numerical simulation results.

1. INTRODUCTION

The Engineering Test Satellite VIII (ETS-VIII), a three ton class, three-axis stabilized geosynchronous

communications satellite, was launched by JAXA in December, 2006. It has a pair of large antenna reflectors for mobile

communications and large solar paddles, as illustrated in Fig. 1.

Advanced on-orbit attitude control experiments using the ETS-VIII are scheduled at the end of its mission life.

The experiment is intended to apply highly advanced control theories to develop a baseline for future controller design

technology for this class of satellite. Regarding attitude control, classical control theory, e.g. PID control is still used,

since ETS-III was developed a half-century ago. However, the present three-axis satellite attitude control technology

has already become much too advanced to be described in terms of classical control theory.

From such a background, the effectiveness of the LTI H-infinity controller has been demonstrated through on-orbit

experiments using ETS-VI (Fig. 2) [1]. Large spacecrafts for communications and earth observation recently developed

by JAXA commonly have large flexible solar paddles that rotate slowly around the pitch axis at the rate of orbit to

enhance the electric power generation efficiency. Therefore, the dynamics equation includes varying inertia and

coupling matrices between the attitude motion and the structural vibration, depending on the paddle angle. This class of

spacecraft is a time-dependent or parameter-dependent multi-input multi-output linear system; the controller must be

designed while taking these features into consideration. To resolve this problem, we investigated certain approaches

such as H-infinity with constant scaling and μ-synthesis in the LTI robust control framework. However, fixed

controllers of these types have been inapplicable to the problem because the norms of the perturbations are too large.

Moreover, the requirement for attitude control accuracy to enhance the attitude decision accuracy and the stability

level has arisen in the advanced earth observation satellites and other scientific satellites in recent years. It is indeed

possible to meet the new needs to some degree by making attitude sensors more efficient, but there remains a problem

of suppressing high-frequency disturbances outside the control band. Along with the demand for attitude determination

accuracy for improved stability, however, no strong relationship was shown with the controller, and stability in the low-

frequency range has been achieved using classical control theory. Consequently, an up-to-date, advanced control theory

has not yet been introduced into the field of spacecraft development in Japan. For the case of ETS-VIII, the attitude

control specification is satisfied using classical-type design method under the assumptions that the dynamic interference

between the roll, pitch, and yaw axes is comparatively small. However, such a design method is fundamentally

applicable only to an single-input and single-output (SISO) system. Moreover, a classical approach is certain to

confront limitations sooner or later. The ASTRO-G (Fig. 3) spacecraft has been proposed by the Space VLBI Working

Group in Japan. Actually, ASTRO-G is a radio telescope satellite with the same large-scale antenna structure as that of

ETS-VIII. In ASTRO-G, a high-speed switching maneuver function is necessary to make the phase correction

observation. The requirement for attitude maneuvers in recent years and the desire to solve the remaining problems

from control experiments with ETS-VI provide the motivation to execute the ETS-VIII advanced attitude control

experiment.

For those reasons, the authors study the application of μ-synthesis [2]-[3]: a control system design method for

treating both the mode of vibration in the high frequency domain and the change in the value of modal parameters in the

low-frequency domain by paddle rotation. The residual mode and the change of its parameters are assumed to be a

margin of the model error for the LPV system. This method is intended to localize the influence of the varying

parameter using the descriptor form. Consequently, less-conservative design and the frequency-shaping technique can

be incorporated. As a result of our proposed method, we can improve the control performance easily. Moreover, the

controller that we design as a LTI controller is more computationally efficient than the LPV controller. Simultaneously,

we study the design method that incorporates model change based on differences of mass properties between Beginning

Of mission Life (BOL) and End Of mission life (EOL). We can therefore guarantee robust stability of the system for

whole its mission life.

2. SPACECRAFT MODEL

Figure 4 depicts the ETS-VIII configuration. It has two solar array paddles and two large deployable antenna

reflectors. The solar paddles are deployed in the pitch direction and rotate 360 degrees per day so that each paddle

constantly faces the Sun.

In general, the equation of motion for the flexible spacecraft is described as the following hybrid equation

incorporating rigid-body rotation and the vibration equation of flexible components (solar paddles and antenna

reflectors) by the FEM numerical analysis.

J (γ )θ + ∑ Pi (γ )η(i ) = u

i . (1)

Pi (γ )θ +η + Λiη + Σi2 η (i ) = 0

T (i ) (i )

In those equations, θ ∈ R3 is the attitude angle, η ( i ) ∈ R fi is the modal coordinate of the i-th appendage, and u ∈ R 3 is

the torque control input around three axes. The inertia matrix J (γ ) ∈ R 3× 3 and coupling Pi (γ ) ∈ R 3× fi vary depending on

the paddle angle γ . In addition, Σ i2 = diag [σ 12i "σ 2fi ] is the modal stiffness matrix, where σ ji denotes the modal

frequency. The modal damping matrix Λ i ∈ R fi × fi is presumed as Λ i = diag [ 2ζ 1iσ i1 " 2ζ fiσ fi ] using the modal damping

ratio ζ ji , which is proportional to σ ji .

The measurement output is described as

⎡ y ⎤ ⎡θ ⎤

y = ⎢ 1 ⎥ = ⎢ ⎥ , (2)

⎣ y 2 ⎦ ⎣θ ⎦

by the attitude determination logic based on gyros and earth/sun/star sensors, the estimated attitude angles and their

rates.

Equations (1) and (2) are described compactly as

M (γ ) q + D q + Kq = Fu , (3)

⎡ y ⎤ ⎡F q⎤ T

y = ⎢ 1⎥ = ⎢ T ⎥

⎣ y2 ⎦ ⎣ F q ⎦

where q = [θ T η T ]T .

We have proposed controllers of three types as control algorithms of this experiment. The first type is a reduced-

order H-infinity gain-scheduling controller that achieves robust stability and high disturbance-attenuation capability

[4]–[5]. The second method is controller synthesis based on the dynamics properties, utilizing sensor and actuator

collocation conditions [6]–[7]. The third type is a robust controller using μ-synthesis. In this section, we present case

study results of the LTI-μ robust controller design for ETS-VIII attitude control.

(b) Robust stability against higher vibration modes; “spillover” supuression.

(c) Steady state attitude control error less than 0.05[deg] under East-West orbit control thruster firing.

(d) Attitude tracking maneuver capability to plus/minus 0.05[deg] step command for antenna calibration.

The ETS-VIII AOCS has the limitations of control torque input level ( u ≤ 0.04 [Nm]) by reaction wheel and onboard

CPU sampling rate is 16[Hz].

3.1 Perturbation

First, this chapter presents a description of the handling of the perturbation, which is an important point in our

study of μ-synthesis application.

In the constrained mode model of Eq. (3), the coefficient matrix that varies depending on the paddle angle is only

M (γ ) ; its influence is localized. Then, because we can use this feature to advantage in robust control system design,

we use the descriptor form in μ-synthesis.

First, we reduce the order of Eq. (3). Its purpose is to design the reduced-order controller that guarantees robust

stability against higher vibration mode as unstructured uncertainty.

We divide the flexible vibration mode where η = [η cT η r T ]T ; therefore, the coefficient matrix of Eq. (1) is divisible

as follows.

P (γ ) = [ Pc (γ ) Pr (γ )]

Λ = diag [ Λ c Λ r ] (4)

Σ = diag [ ∑ ∑ ] 2

c

2

r

We express qc = [θ T η cT ]T as the control mode and qr = η r as the residual mode: Eqs. (1) and (2) can be described as

follows in the frequency domain.

yˆ ( s ) = G ( s )uˆ ( s ) = (Gc ( s ) + Gr ( s )) −1 uˆ ( s ) (5)

G ( s ) = Gc ( s ) − 1 + G Δ ( s ) (6)

Here, we design the weighting function W(s) that is stable and proper for the additive model error margin GΔ (s ) as

follows.

GΔ ( s ) = Δ w ( s )W ( s ) , Δ w ∞

<1 (7)

ww = Δ w ( s ) z w , w w , z w ∈ R 6 . (8)

Consequently, we can treat the influence of the residual mode in the high frequency domain as a virtual disturbance.

Here, for making the generalized plant, we describe the state space realization of this weight function W(s) as

x w = Aw x w + Bw u

. (9)

z w = C w x w + Dw u

Next, to handle the parameter change of the control mode as structured uncertainty, we describe Gc ( s ) −1 using the

descriptor form as the following.

(10)

y = Cc x

In those equations, x = [ q cT q cT ] T ∈ R n = 2 ( 3 + g ) are descriptor variables. The matrix Ec (γ ) is divided into the nominal

model Ec and the additive model error margin EΔ (γ ) in the specific angle. They are given as

[I M c ]

Ec = diag

EΔ (γ ) = diag [0 M Δ (γ )]

where

where the followings hold.

D c = diag [0 Λc ]

K c = diag [0 ∑ c2 ] (14)

Then, we describe EΔ (γ ) using the following equation with scalar parameter δ i (γ ) depending on γ

k

EΔ (γ ) = ∑ δ i (γ ) Ei , (15)

i =1

where δ i (γ ) < 1 for all γ . We obtain Eq. (16) using full rank decomposition, noting that Ec is a regular matrix, and

hi × n

R = [ R1T ⋅ ⋅ ⋅ R kT ] T Ri ∈ R

w E = Δ E z E = − Δ E Rx . (18)

Therefore, we can express the expansion system incorporating the influence of parameter variation as follows.

z E = − REc−1 Ac x − REc−1Bu − RLwE (19)

y = Cc x

In addition, to reduce sensitivity and achieve robust performance, we define controlled output z λ ∈ R 3 as

⎡1 0 ⎤ ⎡ed ⎤

e = ⎢ d ⎥ = ⎢ d ⎥ − ⎢ 1⎥ = d − y (21)

⎣ ev ⎦ ⎣ 0 ⎦ ⎣ y 2 ⎦

and d is target value for the attitude angle. We express these perturbations described separately above as follows.

Here, in practical case, we show some singular value plots about full order plant (Fig.5), control mode (Fig.6), and

residual mode with weighting functions (Fig.7~8) of ETS-VIII spacecraft every 5[deg] during 0 to 90[deg] are shown.

The number of control modes is four (3 rigid modes and 1 elastic mode). The weighting functions are selected to satisfy

robust stability for all γ .

and the weighting function for attitude angle and the weighting function for attitude rate

During the control system design process, we define the nominal model of γ = 45 [deg] as nominal and we treat

only γ ∈ [ 0 , 90 ] [deg] as a range of the paddle rotation angle, using the symmetry of spacecraft structure. Moreover,

the symmetric vibration modes in the body frame is uncontrollable using attitude control systems because that vibration

mode couples only with transitional motion of spacecraft [8]. Therefore, to exclude this uncontrollable mode, we take

twice of the coupling matrix Pc (γ ) . Then we describe the central rigid-body rotation equation and the vibration

equation of flexible components using the south paddle coordinate system (Eq. (24)). We perform coordinate

transformation using the direction cosine matrix (DCM) Q (γ ) , which expresses the relationship between the central

rigid-body frame and the south paddle frame. However, the system input and output are expressed in the central rigid-

body frame.

After performing coordinate transformation, the estimated attitude angle θ becomes Eq. (23).

We perform μ-synthesis with D-K iteration over the generalized plant G made using Eqs. (24) and (25). From the

To this generalized plant, the controller K is designed by the μ-synthesis using D-K iteration. However, generally,

it is known that the μ-synthesis designs the controller with conservative control performances. Therefore, we also apply

the μ-analysis after the μ-synthesis as shown in Fig.9, 10. Here, λD is the weighting function to reduce sensitivity for the

error margin of attitude rates, and f is the weighting function for control inputs.

In this scheme, the weighting functions λD and f are modified through the result of μ-analysis. The designed final

controller in this paper is selected as being the best control performance controller among the controllers for which the

μ-value obtained by μ-analysis is less than one. The obtained structured singular value is depicted in Fig. 11

In general, the model parameters of spacecraft representing mass properties vary according to the decrease of fuel

used for orbit control. In this paper, our controller is designed using the BOL model. Moreover, we obtain the EOL

model simultaneously, so we verified the varying width of EOL and BOL model (Fig. 12). Both EOL and BOL

parameters width change is calculated from the nominal values at 45 [deg] model.

As a result, the difference between BOL and EOL models is small, but the varying width of EOL model is not

fully included in that of BOL. For that reason, we redesigned the controller adding a 3% error margin to the varying

GNC 2008

width of the BOL model to include the error margin of the EOL model into that of BOL model. Thereby, we can

guarantee its robust stability for its entire mission life.

4 SIMULATION RESULTS

We now apply the designed LTI-μ controller to the attitude control problem of the ETS-VIII. For this paper, we

use two simulation conditions that are set according to actual on-orbit experiment sequences. The first case is the bias

response by the step reference attitude angle added to each axis for 600 [s], the second case is the impulse disturbance

response by reaction wheels. This disturbance causes 0.04 [Nm] torque during 30 [s] added to each axis for 600 [s]. The

initial paddle angle is set to 45 [deg]; a conventional PD controller is also used in each case for comparison. These

simulation results are presented in Figs. 13 and 14.

Results show that the closed-loop systems are stable and that our proposed LTI controller using μ-synthesis

achieved better control performance than the conventional PD controller. The control input signals remain within the

limitation of ( u ≤ 0.04 [Nm]) in each case.

And, we show cases of this on-orbit attitude control experiments. The following figures show each experimental

case.

5 CONCLUSION

In this paper, we presented an LTI controller using μ-synthesis for the MIMO-LPV system depending on the

paddle rotation. Our proposed method can incorporate the frequency-shaping technique, thereby easily improving the

control performance. Moreover, our controller uses less computational capacity than the LPV controller. The model

incorporates variation based on the difference of the mass properties between BOL and EOL. Thereby, we can

guarantee its robust stability for its entire mission life. Numerical simulation results were presented to demonstrate that

capability.

This advanced control experiment using ETS-VIII is intended to establish a control system design method for

extremely precise attitude control and maneuvering of large-scale flexible spacecraft. Our ultimate goal is an advanced

control theory developed in the control engineering field including the proposed method. That theory can become a

standard approach for attitude control systems, and can serve as the baseline technology used in next-generation

satellites. That is an important step in the development of future sophisticated spacecraft attitude control technology.
