Currently in the United States there is increasing commercial and governmental interest in Hall-effect thrusters for high power applications. Of the Hall-effect thrusters configurations available, it has been observed that Nested channel Hall thrusters (NHT) are well suited to high power applications. The proof of concept work of Liang on the X2 NHT has shown that such a configuration meets or exceeds the performance of conventional single-channel thrusters. In order to extend the NHT concept… CONTINUE READING
