Modeling and Simulation of Satellite Solar Panel Deployment and Locking

Birhanu Fufa, Chen Zhao-Bo and Ma Wensheng

This study investigates the complicated interaction between the deployment and locking processes of satellite flexible solar panel with the attitude of the satellite. Flexible panels have low fundamental vibration modes and are more likely to deflect and vibrate due to the inertia and external forces. These modes are often excited during normal on-orbit operations. In this study, the application of ADAMS (Automatic Dynamic Analysis of Mechanical Systems) and ANSYS computer programs to the modeling and simulation of the situation during solar panel deployment and locking operations is presented. The simulation result demonstrates how the deployment and locking operations affect the attitude of the satellite. Designers can use this model to decide as to which part they should give emphasis in the design of vibration control of the flexible solar panels.
