Abstract: In this paper, the dynamical model in a matrix second-order nonlinear form with respect to the quaternion coordinates is firstly established for the attitude system of a satellite, which is complete in the sense that no approxima tion is taken. Then, with the help of a recently proposed general parametric design approach for general fully-actuated second-order nonlinear systems, a direct parametric approach for satellite attitude control via proportional plus derivative quaternion feedback is proposed, which …
