Fundamentals of electric propulsion: ion and Hall thrusters Pdf Book Description:
During the majority of the twentieth century, electrical propulsion was believed that the technology of the future. Now, the future has now arrived. This new publication explains the essentials of electrical propulsion for spacecraft and explains in detail the physics and characteristics of both major electrical thrusters in use now, ion and ion thrusters. The authors give an introduction to plasma physics so as to permit readers to comprehend the versions and derivations used in ascertaining electric thruster performance.
Based mostly on research and development performed in the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and paired with dozens of tables, statistics, homework problems, and references, Basics of Electric Propulsion: Ion and Hall Thrusters is an essential textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students that are preparing to go into the aerospace market. Additionally, it functions as an equally invaluable source for professional engineers at work within the specialty.
