Simulation of vacuum electric arcs for thermal analysis

Abstract

Arcing in spacecraft is a well known phenomenon in the Aerospace industry. Generally, the only signature in the spacecraft telemetry when an arcing event takes place is the current drawn in to the arc from the power bus and the temperature of the affected and surrounding equipment. A method of simulating a vacuum electric arc for thermal modeling purpose… (More)
