Abstract    With a focus on investigations in the area of overactuated spacecraft, a new high-performance robust three-axis finite-time attitude control approach, which is organized in connection with the quaternion based estimation scheme is proposed in the present research with respect to state-of-the-art. The approach proposed here is realized based upon double closed loops to deal with the angular rates of the system, in the inner loop, and also the rotational angles of the system in line with the corresponding quaternion, in the outer loop, synchronously. With this goal, a combination of the linear and its non-linear terms through the sliding mode control approach and also the proportional derivative based linear quadratic regulator control approach is organized. There is the white measurement noise to be realized the outcomes in such real situations, where it is coped with through the optimal estimation scheme to be designed, correspondingly. The investigated results are organized with regard to the pulse modulation synthesis through the technique of the pulse width pulse frequency to manage a set of on-off reaction thrusters, as long as the control allocation is employed to handle the aforementioned overactuated system under control. The effectiveness of the approach investigated is finally considered in line with a series of the experiments to be tangibly verified.

چکیده    با تمرکز بر پژوهش در حوزه فضاپیماهای فوق تحریک، یک روش کنترل وضعیت مقاوم سه محوره جدید با کارآیی بالا بر اساس تخمین مبتنی بر کواترنیون در این تحقیق پیشنهاد شده است. این روش کنترلی بر پایه طراحی دو حلقه برای کنترل همزمان سرعت زاویه­ای و چرخش زاویه­ای در راستای کواترنیون صورت پذیرفته است. با این هدف، یک ترکیب خطی و غیرخطی با به کارگیری کنترل مد لغزشی و همچنین کنترل تناسبی مشتقی مبتنی بر رگولاتور درجه دوم خطی طراحی شده است. در این پژوهش، نویز سفید اندازه­گیری مورد بررسی قرار گرفته است و متناظرا از یک روش تخمین مبتنی بر کواترنیون استفاده شده است. نتایج حاصل بر پایه آنالیز مدلاسیون پالس از طریق تکنیک پهنای پالس و فرکانس پالس با هدف راه اندازی یک مجموعه رانشگرهای عکس العملی دو وضعیته بیان شده است، در شرایطی که ایده تخصیص کنترل جهت راه اندازی سامانه فوق تحریک مطرح شده است. برتری نتایج روش پیشنهادی در راستای یک مجموعه آزمایشات ارزیابی و مورد تایید قرار گرفته است.
