Abstract

In this study, control strategies based on time-varying LQR, Lyapunov-Floquet transformation (LFT), backstepping, feedback linearization, and constant gain feedback control are implemented for the linearized time periodic equations of spacecraft relative motion when the reference orbit is elliptic. Also, natural and nonnatural leader-follower two-spacecraft formations are studied. The stability of the closed-loop response, the control effort required, and the settling time are investigated and compared for all control strategies. Furthermore, using constant gain feedback, the estimated region of attraction of the closed-loop system is obtained analytically.
