Abstract

In this paper, we develop the dynamics of a particle satellite motion around the oblate earth using a special rotating reference frame. This dynamics is used to deduce the conditions under which the orbital plane of motion of the particle satellite remains fixed. Next, a two-scale perturbation analysis is performed to seek the analytical solution of the particle satellite motion in the presence of the J2 influence of the oblate earth. The resulting analytical solution of the planar dynamics of the particle satellite is utilized to produce a planar motion controller so that the perturbation forces in the radial direction are tailored to guarantee that the particle satellite moves in a periodic trajectory. Finally, illustrative simulations are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed framework.
