  title={HET Scaling Methodology: Improvement and Assessment},
  author={Tommaso Misuri and Doc Student and Mariano Andrenucci},
The HET scaling method is an important tool to predict Hall thruster performance in a preliminary design phase. In this paper we present the recent development of the HET scaling model. The model has been further refined in order to take into account the presence of doubly ionized particles and to attempt a prediction of what happens when a thruster works off the design point. Then the model has been extensively tested, comparing its predictions with the experimental data for eight different… CONTINUE READING
