Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to develop a tri-axis spacecraft simulator to simulate the three-axis attitude motion of a satellite and for ground-based hardware-in-the-loop simulation.
Design/methodology/approach – The structure of tri-axis satellite attitude simulator is designed first. Full dynamic model is then derived. Based on the dynamic model, a simple proportional-integral-derivative controller is developed and applied to control the motion of simulator.
Findings – The effectiveness of the proposed simulator configuration has been verified through numerical simulations. The tri-axis simulator can follow the satellite attitude motion precisely.
Originality/value – This paper is valuable for researchers working on the development of tri-axis spacecraft attitude simulator. This work is original. The simulator configuration has been applied to a satellite mission that was launched successfully in 2006.
