Satellite's Motion under the Effect of Magnetic Torque

Rashmi Bhardwaj and Parsan Kaur

Abstract

Non-integrability of planar oscillation of a satellite in an elliptic orbit under the influence of magnetic torque has been studied. The amplitude of the oscillation remains constant upto the second order of approximation. The analysis regarding the stability of the stationary planar oscillation of a satellite near the resonance frequency shows that discontinuity occurs in the amplitude of the oscillation at a frequency of the external periodic force which is less than the frequency of the natural oscillation.
