Dos Astronuts 1758 São José dos Cmpos SP BRAZIL Abstrct: - o perform the orbitl mneuvers, softwre tht clcultes n optiml mneuver is developed. his method will be used s reference for comprison nd nlises of the suboptiml methods to be used on bord. his method id bsed on n nlyticl development tht generte equtions tht cn be computed in shorter time, llowing rel time pplictions. Key-Words: - Orbitl mneuvers, low thrust, strodynmics, rtificil stellites, orbitl dynmics. 1 Introduction he problem of clculting orbitl mneuvers is very importnt topic in Orbitl Mechnics. hus, the problem of trnsferring spcecrft from n orbit to nother hs grown in importnce in recent yers. Applictions of this study cn be found in vrious spce ctivities, such s plcing stellite in geosttionry orbit, the mneuvers of spce sttion, orbit mintennce of stellite, mong others. In ctul pplictions, there my be need to mke n dditionl mneuver, both for trnsfer orbit or only for periodic corrections of lesser mgnitude. his issue of trnsfer is to chnge the position, velocity nd mss of the stellite from its current sttus to new stte pre-determined. he trnsfer my be completely constrined or prtilly free (free time, free finl velocity, etc.). In the most generl cse, the choice of direction, sense nd mgnitude of the thrust to be pplied should be mde, respecting the limits of the vilble equipment. o crry out this trnsfer, it is intended to use optiml or suboptiml continuous mneuvers [1], [2]. So, to fulfill tht tsk, two methods for clculting mneuvers were developed. he first of them will get n optimiztion without worrying bout the processing time. he second method is sub-optiml nd it will pproch the directions of ppliction of the thrust to llow fster clcultion of the control. he optimum method will be used to compre the consumption obtined by the sub-optiml method, which involves simplifictions for ech specil sitution, in order to obtin high processing speed, fvoring the possibility of using it in rel-time. In both methods, it will be ssumed tht the mgnitude of the thrust to be pplied is constnt nd smll nd the serch will be to find its direction. his direction cn be free (optiml method), [] or with some kind of constrints (sub-optiml method). 2 Sub-optiml Method he gol of this topic is to develop sub-optiml method with high-speed computing for the clcultion of orbitl mneuvers bsed on continuous thrust nd smll mgnitude. he ide is to hve method tht genertes quick result nd, if possible, with result in terms of cost of fuel not much different from the optiml method described bove. his method should be used in cses of trnsfers with smll mgnitude, which usully re more frequent in the steps tht follow the insertion of the spcecrft in its nominl orbit. o solve this problem, it ws chosen in the literture bse method to mke expnsions nd djustments to the needs of this work. he method is described below. A ner optiml method for clculting orbitl trnsfer nd with minimum time (so, minimum consumption, s the mgnitude of the thrust is constnt, wht implies tht the time of ppliction of thrust nd consumption re directly proportionl) round the Erth for spcecrft with electric solr propellnt ws developed by [4]. It used technique of direct optimiztion to solve the problem of optiml control, with pproches towrd ppliction of thrust. he optiml trjectories clculted by the direct pproch present very close results to the optiml trjectories obtined from vritionl clcultion. he equtions of motion for the vehicle when the thrust is cting re shown below. he equtions re written in terms of non-singulr equinotil elements to cover both circulr nd plnr orbits (i = 0, 180). he reltion between the equinotil elements (, h, k, p, q, F) nd the clssicl orbitl elements (, e, i, W, W, E) is given by: h = esen( ω Ω) (1) ISSN: ISBN:

For spcecrft moving in the grvittionl field nd subject to the propulsive force, the equtions of motion re s follows: ' x = Mαˆ (6) In eqution 6 the stte vector is x = [, h, k, p, q] nd the sign ( ') indictes the derivtive with respect to time. he vector ( x 1) is unit vector long the direction of thrust ppliction. he vlue is the mgnitude of the thrust ccelertion, given by: 2ηP0 = (7) mgisp where h is the efficiency of the propulsion system, P0 is the initil power given propulsion system, m is the mss of the vehicle, g is the grvity ccelertion t se level nd Isp is the specific impulse. he eqution of stte for F is not included becuse it hs been used the verge of orbitl elements nd thus only elements which vry slowly re considered. he processing time is significntly reduced when using orbitl verges. As ll orbitl elements used re vribles tht vry slowly, due to the fct tht the force of thrust hs little mgnitude, it cn be used mjor steps of integrtion, in the order of dys. he eqution of motion of the spcecrft cn be pproximted by clculting the increment of ech orbitl element in period nd dividing by such time. herefore, the vrition in time of the equinotil elements by complete orbit with the propeller cting cn be obtined from the eqution: π ' 1 dt x = ˆ α df M (8) df π where is the pproximtion of the stte nd is the orbitl period. he br on top of vribles mens tht they were evluted using the verge stte vector. he integrtion represents the chnge in orbitl elements in revolution with the orbitl elements kept constnt, unless the eccentric longitude F, which is vried between -p e p. Setting the direction for the thrust ppliction by the components (id, jd, kd), the product shown inside the integrl symbol cn be obtined. As the ccelertion is held constnt, it mens tht this vlue cn be plced outside of the integrl symbol. hus, the nlyticl equtions used for the terms corresponding to ech of the elements re shown below, where id, jd nd kd represent the three components of the direction vector of the thrust ppliction.

It is lso possible to write them ccording to the trditionl keplerin elements. hey cn be found in [5]. he clculus of integrtion shown in Eqution 8 genertes equtions tht re too long for rel pplictions, especilly tking into ccount the need to implement them in rel time for mneuver. hus, lthough these equtions, in their complete form shown here, generte new method for clculting orbitl mneuvers, their use will be focused on individul cses. his implies to define reference orbit, which my be the finl desired orbit, the initil orbit of the spcecrft or even n verge of those two orbits. As it will be considered only mneuvers with smll mplitudes, this restriction will not bring gret losses in terms of ccurcy. hen, with these pproches mde, numericl vlues cn be used, so tht, these functions re only functions of F nd numericl constnts. From there, the integrl used in eqution 8 cn be clculted nd it is obtined simple nlyticl equtions for the vrition of ech orbitl element considered s function of direction nd mgnitude of the thrust pplied. hus, the problem of obtining the lowest fuel consumption in mneuver cn be defined s to find the optiml direction for thrust ppliction tht minimizes: J = t f (14) Subject to the men equtions of motion nd the initil condition: x (0) = x 0 (15) nd lso subject to the ties in the finl stte: ψ x(t ),t = x(t ) x (16) [ ] 0 f f f f = Results Severl mneuvers were simulted to test the methods developed [5]. he first two mneuvers involve the sme initil orbit, but the directions of thrust ppliction nd time of the opertion re different, with the gol of reching finl orbit frther. he third mneuver involves greter rnge of vrition in semi-mjor xis nd it is good to demonstrte the pplicbility of the method in situtions like this..1 Mneuver 1 In this specific cse, the semi-mjor xis ws chnged nd eccentricity nd the rgument of perigee of the ISSN: ISBN:
