PlateModel.GetSRPForce(Variable) Method

Description

Returns the current SRP force on the PlateModel in the specified reference frame.

 

In order for the PlateModel to have an effect on the Spacecraft's propagation, the Spacecraft's ForceModel must be configured correctly. Turn on SRP using ForceModel.SRP = 1, and then choose PlateModel-based SRP using ForceModel.SRPForceGeometry = 1.
