Stationary plasma thrusters are attractive electric propulsion systems for spacecrafts. The usual propellant is xenon. Among the other suggested propellants, krypton could be one of the best candidates. Most studies have been carried out with a Hall effect thruster previously designed for xenon. The ATON A-3 developed by MSTU MIREA (Moscow) initially defined for xenon has been optimized for.

Brophy. In spacecraft propulsion, a Hall-effect thruster (HET) is a type of ion thruster in which the propellant is accelerated by an electric field.

Hall-effect thrusters use a magnetic field to limit the electrons' axial motion and then use them to ionize propellant, efficiently accelerate the ions to produce thrust, and neutralize the ions in the -effect thrusters (based on the discovery.

Conclusion. The mechanisms of electron transport in a Stationary Plasma Thruster are still not clearly understood and numerical or theoretical models cannot at this moment state whether the measured conductivity in this device is due to electron-wall collisions or to field by: 6.

stationary plasma thruster (SPT); spacecraft (S/C) Introduction As it is known [1], SPT’s had started to operate in space in and since that time they are regularly used for the spacecrafts (S/C) orbit correction.

The main developer and producer of the flight SPT versions in Russia is Experimental Design Bureau (EDB) Fakel and by now over   In literature, the thruster is reported as “plasma accelerator with closed electron drift and prolonged acceleration zone”.

The SPT was invented and developed to an advanced state by Morozov et al. at Kurchatov Institute, Russia (then USSR) during s. The SPT is a low thrust (up to mN) electric space-propulsion engine with high. Stationary plasma thrusters are ion thrusters whose properties make them especially suitable for satellite station keeping or orbit transfer.

In these thrusters, a magnetic field transverse to the electron flow towards the anode increases the electron collision frequency and makes possible the generation of a plasma at relatively low gas flow and gas density. Therefore, such devices are more frequently called “stationary plasma thrusters” (SPTs).

We will use this term throughout the paper. SPTs were designed in s from the basic idea of A. Morozov at the Kurchatov Atomic Energy Institute (AEI) (G. Shchepkin’s laboratory).

Stationary plasma thruster evaluation in Russia A team of electric propulsion specialists from U.S. government laboratories experimentally evaluated the performance of a kW Stationary Plasma Thruster (SPT) at the Scientific Research Institute of Thermal Processes in Moscow and at 'Fakel' Enterprise in Kaliningrad, Russia.

The evaluation was performed using a combination. over chemical thrusters. Sincemore than Hall thrusters have been flown on Russian spacecraft, and more than 52 thrusters remain in operation.1 An increasing number of commercial and scientific space missions in Russia, the US, Europe, and Japan are planned with spacecraft using Hall thrusters.

Abstract: A team of electric propulsion specialists from U.S. government laboratories experimentally evaluated the performance of a kW Stationary Plasma Thruster. The interest in low‐power electric thrusters stimulated our research on a small stationary plasma thruster.

The first results on the dependence of the thrust, the discharge current, the ion current, and the axial electron current on gas flow are reported. It was also shown that the drop of the discharge current with magnetic field is strongly affected by the emission current of the filament.Particle-in-Cell Simulation of Stationary Plasma Thruster Contributions to Plasma Physics, Vol.
