Satellite harmonic torque estimator

Image Number 9 for United States Patent #6672544.

A spacecraft embedded in a reference frame rotating relative to inertial space. The spacecraft generally includes actuators for maneuvering the spacecraft with respect to the reference frame, an attitude measurement device that measures the pitch and roll attitude of the spacecraft with respect to the reference frame, a control device adapted to keep the roll and pitch angles of the spacecraft close to the commanded roll and pitch angles, and a harmonic torque estimator adapted to read the commanded angular velocity of the spacecraft relative to an inertial frame, read momentum wheel speeds, read known predicted external torques and combine angular velocity, measured wheel speed and known external torque to produce an estimated observable periodic torque.
