Paper Title
Geometric Model of External Antennas Layout of Solar Spacecraft

The article deals with the solution of the problems of automation placement and orientation of the solar panels and hubs both on the ground and on the spacecraft. The purpose of research - to evaluate the mutual shading of solar panels, both among themselves and with other objects (such as a space station). This problem is considered as an optimization problem of mathematical programming, aimed at maximizing the use of these high-power sources in outer space stations and space colonies. Decision method - the geometric modeling of the space station and solar panels with a certain orientation. As a method of modeling the receptor used geometric models, samples the space accommodate both the battery and the space station itself. Index terms- design automation, solar power, solar panels, spacecraft, heliostat, orientation, shading, geometric models of the receptor.
