Hall Effect Thrusters (HET) are known to exhibit many high-speed oscillations that are indicative of thruster performance. Azimuthal ionization oscillations, called spokes, have been investigated extensively but the mechanisms governing their behavior are still poorly understood. Most experimentation has been done with single-channel Hall thrusters but evidence exists that a nested-channel Hall thruster experiences partial oscillation coupling between channels. This paper details the… CONTINUE READING
