Quasi-continuous higher-order sliding mode controller designs for spacecraft attitude tracking manoeuvres

By C. Pukdeboon, A.S.I. Zinober and M.W.L. Thein


This paper studies high-order sliding mode control laws to deal with some spacecraft attitude tracking problems. Second and third order quasi-continuous sliding control are applied to quaternion-based spacecraft attitude tracking manoeuvres. A class of linear sliding manifolds is selected as a function of angular velocities and quaternion errors. The second method of Lyapunov theory is used to show that tracking is achieved globally. An example of multiaxial attitude tracking manoeuvres is presented and simulation results are included to verify and compare the usefulness of the various controllers.\ud \u
