Analytical Extraction of Plasma Properties Using a Hall Thruster Efficiency Architecture IEPC-2007-188


An investigation of the conversion from anode electrical energy to jet kinetic energy in a laboratory model Hall thruster yielded an experimentally determined thrust efficiency that was analytically decomposed into the product of propellant, voltage, and current utilization efficiency. This method accounts for loss of propellant utilization from plume… (More)
