Nonlinear Fuzzy Hybrid Control of SpacecraftThis paper describes a new approach for intelligent control of a spacecraft with large angle maneuvers. This new approach, based on fuzzy logic, determines the required torque to achieve a robust, high performance attitude response. This scheme extends the robustness, performance and portability of the existing linear or nonlinear attitude controllers. Formulations are presented for attitude-control but can be extended to other applications. A simulation study, which uses the new control strategy to stabilize the motion of the Microwave Anisotropy Probe spacecraft in the presence of disturbances and saturations, demonstrates the merits of the proposed scheme.
