Get this from a library. Power electronics development for the SPT thruster. [John A Hamley; Gerald M Hill; John M Sankovic; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.]. SPT is a Hall-effect ion thruster, part of the SPT-family of stands for Stationary Plasma creates a stream of electrically charged xenon ions accelerated by an electric field and confined by a magnetic field.

Thruster is manufactured by Russian OKB Fakel, and was first launched onboard Gals-1 satellite in In Fakel debuted a second generation of the. The SPTB thruster is the basic design variant of the SPTD. Several tasks were solved during development of the design of the new thruster.

In particular, the magnetic system has been optimized to reach the required thrust, specific and life time characteristics of the thruster and to ensure the discharge power operating range. In spacecraft propulsion, a Hall-effect thruster (HET) is a type of ion thruster in which the propellant is accelerated by an electric field.

Hall-effect thrusters use a magnetic field to limit the electrons' axial motion and then use them to ionize propellant, efficiently accelerate the ions to produce thrust, and neutralize the ions in the -effect thrusters (based on the discovery.

Additional, time resolved measurements were taken along the centerline of the thruster (R = 0) and along the discharge channel centerline (R = 5 mm). SPT Hall Thruster Figure 1 provides an image of the SPT Hall thruster operating, as well as a schematic of the thruster.

Existing technological fundamentals and potential development paths. Every electric propulsion system is based on key components that make the concept work.

The most important components are the energy storage device (battery system), 2 the electric machine, the power electronics, and a suitable charging device.

The W-class ISCTv2 Hall Thruster (HT) has been characterized in terms of far-field plume properties. By means of a Faraday Cup and a Retarding Potential Analyzer, both the ion current density and the ion energy distribution function have been measured over a ∘ circular arc for different operating points.

Measurements are compared to far-field plume characterizations performed. Impulse Two-Stage Hall Thruster with Plasma Lens Focusing. In the following, a review of two-stage HETs, plasma lens focusing, and the use of trim coils is discussed.

The implementation of these concepts in the development of the P is then presented, followed by a brief review of the performance and plume characteristics of the thruster to. By examining a range of thruster sizes and operating conditions,9,10 11 we are able to make modeling predictions.

One of the most important parameters for this study is the curve of thruster power in terms of the specific impulse (I sp). As specific impulse increases, the discharge voltage will increase as well. The Hall thruster power is Cited by: designs, develops and produces Power Processing Unit (PPU) to supply Hall Effect Thrusters: SPT from Fakel and PPSG from Snecma.

Now, the future has arrived. This important new book explains the fundamentals of electric propulsion for spacecraft and describes in detail the physics and characteristics of the two major electric thrusters in use today, ion and Hall thrusters.

The authors provide an introduction to. of 1 Newton of thrust at elevated power levels. Development of a Hall thruster capable of operating at seconds at power levels of 50 kilowatts and above requires a thruster design which preserves the physical processes required for efficient ionization and acceleration of the propellant.

Important characteristics for preservation. Together, they make 60% of the industry-wide insurance claims for in-orbit operational defects.

The author, a recognized expert in the industry, has written this book to provide reliable information on a variety of subjects to engineers and managers involved in spacecraft power systems design, development, testing, and operation.

BASIC CONCEPT OF HALL EFFECT THRUSTER. A xenon micro flow control device (XMFCD) is the key component of a xenon feeding system, which controls the required micro flow xenon (µg/s–mg/s) to electric thrusters.

Traditional XMFCDs usually have large volume and weight in order to achieve ultra-high fluid resistance and have a long producing cycle and high processing cost.
