Class TransitionScanningLaw

public class TransitionScanningLaw
extends AnalyticalAttitudeDataServer
Implements a smooth transition from Nsl37 to Epsl, or vice versa.

The scanning law used by this AttitudeDataServer is only valid (to required accuracy) in a short (< 0.5 day) time interval when the spin axis is less than a degree of the ecliptic. The revolving phase angle (nu) is written as nu(t) = 0.5 * acc * t^2 (in preceding mode, that is when nu is close to 0) or as nu(t) = PI + 0.5 * acc * t^2 (in following mode, that is when nu is close to PI). Here t is the time in [days] from the reference time (tRef) of this scanning law, and acc is a constant. On initialization, acc is set to a value such that nu(t) according to this law agrees with Nsl37 (for some suitable choice of initial angles) both in value and rate at t = tRef + T, where T is the ramp-up time (if T > 0) or ramp-down time (if T < 0). At t = tRef the revolving phase is exactly 0 (preceding mode) or PI (following mode). A number of reference quantities can be set as usual by means of setRefTime, setXiRef, setOmegaRef, setTargetPrecRate, and setTargetScanRate from the AnalyticalAttitudeDataServer. Only setNuRef should not be used; it is replaced by setMode(Epsl.Mode). [Nevertheless it is possible to use setNuRef(0.0) instead of setMode(Epsl.Mode.PRECEDING) and setNuRef(Math.PI) instead of setMode(Epsl.Mode.PRECEDING).]
