STE-3605 Mathematical Modeling and Simulation - 5 ECTS
This course teaches the students how to build a satellite simulator through a series of tutorial-like lectures with accompanying assignments. Through a series of 10 assignments, the students will be able to model and simulate a satellite operating in an elliptical orbit. Specifically, the course will cover:
- Orbital Mechanics
- Sun vector modelling
- Magnetic field modelling
- Attitude determination
- Attitude control
- Reaction wheels
- Magnetic torquers
- Actuation strategies
- Pulse width modulation
- Pulse width pulse frequency modulation
- Sensors and sensor noise
After passing the course, students will have the following learning outcomes:
Knowledge and understanding:
- has knowledge on how to model translational and rotational dynamics of spacecraft
- has knowledge on how to design an attitude controller for a rigid body
- has knowledge on how to estimate the attitude based on vector measurements
- is able to model different components required to build a satellite simulator
- is able to perform simulations in Matlab/Simulink
- is able to communicate and discuss advanced concepts
- The candidate will be able to model and simulate complex systems in Matlab/Simulink.
Coursework / Course requirements
The course has a total of 10 assignments that needs to be completed through this course. A minimum 8 of 10 assignments must be approved to be allowed to go up to examination.
Examination and assessment The examination is an oral exam where the students will get time to do a simulation assignment, before explaining the results and show his/hers understanding of the course content.
A-F grading scale are given, where F is not passed.
A re-sit exam will be arranged for students that have passed the coursework requirement.
The examination language is English.
