The model of interaction of electrodynamic space tether systems (EDSTS) with the Earth’s ionosphere and magnetosphere is analyzed. The features of the equation solution of the model and their dependence on boundary conditions on the cable extremities are considered. Some questions relative to the simulation of the influence of additional contactors on current voltage characteristics of the EDSTS are discussed. Some problems of the further examinations are considered.
