Solving the problem of stabilizing program deployment of an orbital tether system taking into account limitations on the rotary motion of the tip body


The paper deals with the problem of stabilizing programme deployment of a space tether system with regard to limitations on the tip body rotary motion. The method proposed is based on direct calculation of the parameters of an optimal regulator using a non-linear model of tether system motion. A criterion of optimality is proposed that makes it possible to take into account the limitations specified when solving the stabilization problem. An example of calculating optimal feedback coefficients is given and the approach described is shown to enable considerable improvement of transition processes that arise in controlling the tether system deployment.
