Computer modeling for improvement of a High Efficiency Multistage Plasma Thruster

Brandt, Tim ORCID

Electrostatic Particle-in-Cell simulations of a downscaled High Efficiency Multistage Plasma Thruster (HEMPT). The purpose of downscaling the HEMPT design is to reach the requirements of missions which have a need for unprecedented low thrust and low noise. The aim of the here presented numerical simulations is to get an improved understanding of the thruster’s physics especially in its downscaled configuration, in order to reach the design goals.
