Presented is a comprehensive power model for the Flywheel Attitude Control, Energy Transmission, and Storage FACETS system located at the Air Force Research Laboratory Space Vehicles Directorate at Kirtland AFB, NM. The system consists of three advanced flywheel units and the Agile Multi-Purpose Satellite Simulator AMPSS. The purpose of FACETS is to demonstrate integrated attitude control maneuvers and energy storage. The FACETS power model is constructed using blocks provided in the Matlab Simulink package. Several electrical elements are represented by state space averaged models using Cuks methods for averaged power converters. The model is demonstrated over an orbital profile derived from a notional space radar application. The model is verified by comparing the performance to previous power subsystem simulations produced by the FACETS program.
