Paper Abstract

By using a modular maltibody dynamics code, dynamical behavior of space structure elements is investigated to get an effective construction scenario for large space systems in orbit. Deployment construction of a triangular key structure for a solar power satellite in low earth orbit is treated, and the dynamical responses through the deployment in orbit plane, orbit normal or parallel plane are simulated. Illustrative examples clearly show the large variety of resulting dynamical behavior during and after deployment construction.
