Asymptotic Stability of Quaternion-based Attitude Control System with Saturation Function

Harry Septanto, Djoko Suprijanto


In the design of attitude control, rotational motion of the spacecraft is usually considered as a rotation of rigid body. Rotation matrix parameterization using quaternion can represent globally attitude of a rigid body rotational motions. However, the representation is not unique hence implies difficulties on the stability guarantee. This paper presents asymptotically stable analysis of a continuous scheme of quaternion-based control system that has saturation function. Simulations run show that the designed system applicable for a zero initial angular velocity case and a non-zero initial angular velocity case due to utilization of deadzone function as an element of the defined constraint in the stability analysis.
