Modified equations of motion around circular trajectory and its application to formation flying control

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Usually, the formation flying associated with a circular orbit is discussed through the well-known Hill's equations of motion. This paper presents and discusses the formation-fixed coordinate to discuss about the formation behavior. The resulted equations take the non-autonomous form and will depict some interesting characteristics. The paper will also present the application of decentralized formation control strategy that stabilizes and enables a quick reaction to the command.
