Hardware Reconfiguration and Simulation of Satellite Attitude Control System
Abstract— A mathematical model is established for implementing hardware reconfiguration and simulation
of an attitude control system for three-axis stabilized satellite. The satellite attitude quaternion, dynamics
equation and kinematics equation are defined and a closed-loop system used for attitude control is designed.
Computer simulation with MATLAB and FPGA instead of space borne equipment is realized, using FPGA
for the host controller and some peripheral modules. The hardware simulation results are good, proving the
feasibility of the scheme. Adding hardware reconfiguration into the design provides a new way for FPGA
simulation of satellite attitude control system.
Index Terms— satellite attitude control, PID, FPGA, serial communication, dynamic reconfiguration.
