Abstract

This paper presents a novel dynamical model for space tether dynamics simulation. The proposed model discretises the cable in a number of elastic rods, which in turn are modeled as a set of equivalent masses. The orbital propagation is performed using a classical Cowell?s method and also a special perturbation method. The implementation is done within the framework of EcosimPro, a multidisciplinary simulation tool. A validation of the model is carried out, as well as a case of application to the de-orbiting of a satellite using an electrodynamic tether.
