Development of ESTCube-2 side panels
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis covers the design of ESTCube-2 nanosatellite sidepanels, the thesis focuses mainly on the design and testing of two side panel components: Sun sensors and magnetorquers. Rest of the side panel design is covered in less detail. The main goals of this work are to develop and test the magnetorquer electronics, the magnetic coils and to develop software for and test the Sun sensor. In this work an overview of ESTCube-2 and the side panels is given, then side panel requirements are set. Based on these requirements two modules for the side panels are developed and tested. The Sun sensors requirements are set, then a prototype sensor is presented that is based on these requirements. The software is developed, and the prototype sensor is tested in an optics laboratory to verify that they meet the requirements. Requirements are set for the coils and the coil driving electronics and designs are developed based on these requirements. The magnetorquers are tested to verify the designs.
