The purpose of this thesis is to explore the uses of magnetic torquers on a CubeSat. This is focused on tuning the gain value of a B-DOT controller for the Detumbling of the ESSENCE CubeSat. This was tested with a converged rate value of 0.05deg/secs as the criterion over 15 orbits; with each simulation having a total of 20 runs. The matrix chosen for the gain value was tested to ensure it was feasible regardless of a change in the initial tumbling rate, settling time and slight command errors.doi:10.32920/ryerson.14653200.v1 fatcat:u4d4a5u2gjbqvcxgrmw6kvo6dq
