Control moment gyro actuator for small satellite applications
Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch
The aim of the thesis is to design a Control Moment Gyro (CMG) actuator which can be used in small satellite applications. The hardware and software of the CMG has to be designed according to specifications given. A satellite fitted with these CMGs has to be able to do a 30 degree rotation within 10 seconds.
