Abstract

The generator regime of electrodynamic bare tethers working at inclined orbits is analyzed. Without damping or some kind of control the attitude dynamics of these tethers is unstable. However, the instability disappears, or reduces drastically, when the tether is self balanced, that is, when the Lorentz torque about the system center of mass vanishes. The aim of the paper is to describe in detail the main parameters involved in the dynamics of this kind of tethers and also their influence on the balance condition. In addition a strategy will be proposed to keep the tether balanced taking into account the whole trajectory followed by the system during the deorbiting process.
