Abstract

In this paper we deal with stationary and periodic motions of satellites in elliptical orbits, including the high eccentricity case, which motions can serve as nominal for satellites with passive attitude control system. We analyze the possibility of using resonance motions of satellites in the Earth's gravity and magnetic fields to comply with the required amplitude characteristics and stability of these solutions under effecting an eddy current damper.
