Abstract : "This paper investigates the robust finite-time attitude tracking control problem for rigid spacecraft considering the modeling uncertainty, external disturbance and actuator saturation. An auxiliary system is proposed to directly compensate for the saturated control input. First, the basic controller is formulated based on the fast nonsingular terminal sliding mode surface (FNTSMS), the fast-TSM-type reaching law and the auxiliary system in the presence of upper bounded external disturbance. Then, when facing system uncertainty which consists of both modeling uncertainty and external disturbance and has upper bounded first derivative, the extended state observer (ESO) is associated with the first controller to improve the robustness of control system. Furthermore, to handle more general system uncertainty which is upper bounded by a polynomial function of the closed-loop system states, a continuous adaptive controller is designed to compensate for the total system uncertainty on line. The proposed controllers are able to deal with system uncertainty, input singularity and actuator saturation, while simultaneously providing fast finite-time convergence speed for the control system. And the problems of complex parameters selection process and repeated differentiations of nonlinear functions can be avoided. Rigorous stability analyses are given via the Lyapunov stability theory and digital simulations are conducted to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed controllers."
