sensitivity analysis


identification of the parameters which impact the AOCS performance, and assessment of their individual contribution to this performance


  • NOTE 1 Only the dominating contributors are of interest. These contributors can include: - Noise, bias and misalignment, for the AOCS sensors and actuators - Satellite mass properties - Satellite configuration variation, e.g. solar array position, sensors and actuators configuration - Measurements outages - Environmental conditions - External and internal disturbances
  • NOTE 2 The AOCS performance can be for instance: - Pointing accuracy - Duration of a manoeuvre - Fuel consumption
  • NOTE 3 The objective is to have an order of magnitude of the contribution, and this can be achieved by analysis, simulation or test.
