Abstract:

A study is made of the dynamics of satellite gravitational stabilization systems with gyrodamping and two types of purely passive dampers. The greatest attention is devoted to examination of motion in the orbital plane. The parameters which yield maximum stability and those ensuring minimum amplitude of the eccentricity oscillations of a satellite for a specified degree of stability are determined. The three-dimensional motion is studied for the satellite-stabilizer system and the problem of increasing the speed of response and the accuracy of the system by introducing a damper in a special way is examined.
