# Advanced Capstone Spacecraft Dynamics and Control Project

This capstone course is the 3rd and final course of the specialization Advanced Spacecraft Dynamics and Control. It assumes you have completed the prior courses on "Attitude Control with Momentum Exchange Devices" and "Analytical Mechanics for Spacecraft Dynamics". This project course investigates the dynamics of a complex spacecraft system where there is a rigid hub onto which a hinged panel is attached. This simulates a spacecraft with a time varying geometry. First, the three-dimensional kinematics of this system are explored. Analytical relationships of the body and panel position and velocity states are derived, and the center of mass properties of this system are explored. Next, a simplified system is used to use Lagrange's equations of motion to predict the dynamical response. With these differential equations we are then able to apply attitude control torques and investigate the rotational response if the spacecraft hub has a spring-hinged panel attached. Two open-loop control torque solutions are investigated. The classical minimum time bang-bang control solution is applied first, illustrating how such a control can yield unwanted panel oscillations. Finally, a filtered version of the bang-bang control is applied to illustrated how the panel oscillations can be significantly reduced at the cost of a slightly longer nominal maneuver time.

#### 电磁学下——恒磁场与时变电磁场

Peking University

《电磁学下》是《电磁学》的第二学习进程，教学内容含恒磁场、磁介质，电磁感应、交流电和电磁场电磁波。虽然《电磁学下》内容比较多，但是处理场的基本方法大家已经熟悉和适应了，应该说，电磁学的前两章是整个电磁学的基础。建议大家学习了第一进程，通过了结业考试以后再进入第二学习进程《电磁学下》的学习。本课程的课程是按照知识点设置模块，《电磁学下》包含6个模块。每个模块又包含几节课，每个模块结束有一个小测，同学们可以自我测试，没有时间限制，大家可以根据自己的需要和时间安排来自主学习，以免一步跟不上，步步跟不上，这对于学习我们这种理论性比较强的课是有利的，已经明白的可以跳过去，不清楚的可以重点学习。...
