    Abstract ( 1891 )   Save
    In consideration of Time-varying and Three-dimensional characteristics of the formation flying InSAR satellites system parameters,a new method derived from time-vector analysis for generation of elevation information was presented.The calculation and simulation programs were also developed.The relations between the ground targets' absolute altitude and system parameters in a single flight period were analyzed in detail.As a result of vector resolution,an analytical method using matrixes to indicate system parameters' error propagation coefficients was established.The analysis of variation regularity of the ground target absolute altitude,followed with the continuous alteration of the formation flying satellite relative orbital configuration,was carried out by putting the processing module of the system parameter error propagation coefficients matrixes into the time-vector analysis model.The results provide theoretical foundation for system key techniques extraction.

    Abstract ( 1850 )   Save
    Brain emotional learning(BEL) model based intelligent controller for a turntable servo system with high precision is presented.BEL model is a bio-computational model inspired by the emotional learning mechanism in mammalians brain.BEL based intelligent controller is designed by fusing the information of system tracking error,control variables and etc.Different control structure can be designed by selecting different sensory input signals,and controller parameters are adjusted by online learning the nodes weights in BEL model based on an associative learning method,and then the adaptive tracking control of the turntable servo system is realized.Simulation and experimental results show that the BEL based intelligent controller has strong learning ability,and can restrain the nonlinear factors such as friction,and exhibits good stability and high tracking precision in application of the real-time control system.

    Abstract ( 1917 )   Save
    In order to study influence of natural convection during melting of phase change material,the oscillatory phenomenon of natural convection was investigated.With enthalpy-porosity method and Boussinesq hypothesis,single-phase governed equations were set up and simulation on melting process under gravity was completed.It is shown that when the Rayleigh number Ra is small,the natural convection can be obtained with a steady solution,then the flow changes from a steady state to a periodical oscillatory state with the increase of Ra.

    Abstract ( 1715 )   Save
    Autonomous navigation system based on ultraviolet sensors is a typical nonlinear system.For the general particle filter lacks the adaptive capacity.A new particle filtering algorithm called adaptive particle filtering was proposed which adopts a new method combining the unscented Kalman filter with the strong tracking filter to produce important density functions.The proposed algorithm adopts UKF to produce particles,in which each sigma point of each particle was updated by STF to make the algorithm have adaptive.Simulation was done based on simulated orbit and measurement data and was compared with results of other filtering algorithms to illuminate the effectiveness of the navigation method.

    Abstract ( 1895 )   Save
    One of the main error sources in orbit dynamic model of the ShenZhou manned spacecraft is due to the effect of deflation,which gives an extra force on the spacecraft.This effect introduces an error in orbit by the order of several kilometers at maximum in the transversal direction.An empirical dynamical model for the deflation process was developed and three model parameters were estimated based on onboard microgravity accelerometer and navigation data.It shows that the precision of orbit prediction is enhanced by over an order of magnitude,indicating that the model is a reasonable solution to the deflation process.
