In this work an analysis of neurocontrollers is given. The purpose of this paper is the neurocontroler for attitude control: satellite rotations. The classification of neurocontroller architecture is provided. The pros and cons of different neurocontrollers are described. Two configuration of neural network – feedforward neural networks with mini-batch descent and modified Elman neural network, are investigated in this work to verify its ability to control the attitude of a satellite. The advantages and disadvantage of different predictive model neurorization systems are described. The class diagram for the simulating of satellite rotation for neural network learning is given. The proposed approach provides the architecture of the neural network and the weights among the layers in order to guarantee stability of the system. The accuracy was calculated.  The AI module, after trained for different configurations of wheels, will get commands with desired 3D rotation speeds and control the wheels to achieve the desired rotation speeds.
