SwissCube inertia wheel assembly – mechanical part
The goal of this project is to develop and build an electric motor to drive the inertia wheel of the SwissCube satellite. This system should provide angular stability to the satellite and allow its control. The operational speeds range from 5000 to 11 000 [rpm]. The main constraints are the mass, 32 [g], and the average available power, 100 [mW] (including the electronics, developed in another project).
