Abstract

Nanosatellites, although originally developed for educational purposes, are increasingly being used for commercial sense. Continuous increase in the application and use means that they require continuous improvement of performance to cope with new challenges. An important issue is the control of the position of the satellite sufficiently accurate and fast to enable it to efficiently carry out its mission. This paper includes a project consisting of a modelled test system and a presented method of control with simulation. Then, the obtained results and resulting conclusions are discussed.
