Abstract

[In this paper we focus on the station keeping around an equilibrium point for a solar sail in the Earth-Sun system. The strategies that we present use the information on the dynamics of the system to derive the required changes on the sail orientation to remain close to an equilibrium point for a long time. We start by describing the main ideas when we consider the RTBP with the effect of the SRP as a model. Then we will see how to extend these ideas when we consider a more complex dynamical model which includes the gravitational attraction of the main bodies in the solar system. One of the goals of the paper is to check the robustness of the algorithms in a more realistic setting and study the effect of errors both in the position determination of the probe and in the orientation of the sail.]
