Paper Abstract

Magnetorquers are actuators often utilized in satellite attitude control systems, especially in missions which target is Low Earth Orbit. This paper presents process of development of so called coreless (or air core) magnetorquer with utilization of Printed Circuit Board (PCB) technology. In comparison to other methods of coreless magnetorquers manufacturing, PCB offers very high repeatability of properties and high quality of the final product. Low workmanship effort, reasonable cost in recurrent realization, possibility of variety of shapes and possibility of integration with other subsystems PCBs makes this technology very attractive. In our work we have perform optimization of PCB magnetorquer design with respect to its size and occupied volume and compare obtained and manufactured unit to similar model designed as a wire winded on carcass. This activity has been performed in a context of the project of HyperCube platform.
