Brandt, Tim and Trottenberg, Thomas and Groll, Rodion and Jansen, Frank and Keller, Andreas and Hey, Franz Georg and Johann, U. and Kersten, Holger and Braxmaier, Claus (2014) Particle-in-Cell simulation of the plasma properties and ion acceleration of a down-scaled HEMP-Thruster. 4th International Spacecraft Propulsion Conference, May 19th - 22th, 2014,, Cologne, Germany.

First results of computer modeling the characteristics of a downscaled High Effciency Multistage Plasma Thruster (HEMPT) are presented. The aim of the micro- HEMPT development is to meet the requirements in very precise attitude control for upcoming formation flight satellites and probes. Computer modeling can help reach the performance goals and save experimental time. In this presentation, a Particle-in-Cell code based simulation is used to investigate a section of the thrusters discharge chamber and how its plasma characteristics react to the change of an input parameter.
