Experimental and simulation studies of satellite transmitter

For European Space Agency (ESA) needs the work done for Wroclaw University of Technology in order to verify the design correctness with respect to fulfillment of technical requirements for orbital launching.

Experimental and simulation studies of satellite transmitter

For European Space Agency (ESA) needs the work done for Wroclaw University of Technology:

  •  experimental modal analysis for satellite transmitter with eigenfrequencies and eigenmodes identification,
  • detailed numerical model of casing and electronics was developed,
  • based on experimental results correctness of numerical model was verified and confirmed
Numerical simulation

Based on verified numercial model the simulation was done:

  • design response on random excitation
  • design response on harmonic excitation within applied frequency spectrum
  • design response on impact excitation
Assessment

Based on simulation results assessment was done:

  •  technical design correctness of device fixation at satellite panel with included breakdown accidents
  • structural static and fatigue strength of the emitter casing
  • structural static and fatigue strength of electronic components, printed circuit boards and solder joints
  • device compliance with launching system requirements
