Abstract: The selection of momentum wheel configuration in satellite attitude control system design was investigated. Five different orientations of momentum wheel system were summarized. The design criteria of momentum wheel reconfiguration, the saturation of the momentum wheel under disturbance torque, energy consumption and reliability in different orientations were proposed by comparing the angular momentum envelope. The proposed method could be applied to the design of momentum wheel control system.
