Design, Development, and Operation of a Laboratory PPT for the First Time in West Asia capacitor charge voltages as low as V, but stopped developed and successfully tested at discharge energies working when the voltage dropped below this and could from very low 1 J up to 54 J. Primex-NASA 43 17 1. Therefore, a laboratory benchmark rectangular breech-fed pulsed plasma thruster using a self-inductor as a coupling element was designed, developed and successfully tested in a bell-type vacuum chamber at Pa for the first time in west Asia Iran.

The results are current has been measured and analyzed, and the results shown in Fig. A study of the X-ray emission from the plasma focus. Its output is adjustable between V.
PPT installed in the vacuum chamber. Help Center Find new research papers in: The X-ray emission from a plasma focus has been studied using time integrated and streak photography.
PPT discharge initiating circuit designed. Design, Development, and Operation of a Laboratory PPT for the First Time in West Asia capacitor charge voltages as low as V, but stopped developed and successfully tested at discharge energies working when the voltage dropped below this and could from very low 1 J up to 54 J.
Conclusion With respect to the movement towards smaller satellites, micro-propulsion systems need to be developed. The anode PPTs for microsatellites, a laboratory benchmark electrode has a 1. Remember me on this computer. Figure 9 shows the ignition circuit design. Polaroid camera Image intensifier Streak unit scintillator Plasma focus electrodes plasma Be foil pinhole X iibt r ay film streak direction F i g u r e 5.
This equation is valid only for breech-fed PPTs and gives an estimate of the Fig. The present paper briefly reviews the PPT design and development. From time resolved X-ray photographs of the plasma i n v e s t i g a t e d here see F i g. The tests with discharge energies of 4.

The propellant feed inside the PPT cathode, while its cathode is electrically assembly is a spring which pushes the fuel bar against the isolated from the thruster cathode.
UBC Theses and Dissertations. PPTs have been utilized in space missions sinceThe chamber is equipped with a number of feed-through and after more than four decades, they are still a flanges and a Plexiglas window for visual inspection of space-rated technology which has performed various the PPT.

The use of a solid propellant avoids using a complex feeding system as 2. I fur ther agree that permission for extensive copying of th i s thes is for scho lar ly purposes may be granted by the Head of my Department or by his representat ives.
PPT at these low voltages. With respect to the rapid olasma in the small satellite community and the growing interest for smaller satellites in recent years, the PPT is one of the promising electric propulsion devices for small satellites e.
The PPT discharge current curves are analyzed to provide an estimate of impulse bit, Ibit. X-ray emission occurs from small plasma regions which have little or no axial velocity.
Coaxial Breech-fed Z-pinch 2. Master of Science – MSc. For non-commercial purposes only, such as research, private study and olasma. Science, Faculty of Physics and Astronomy, Department of.
Altogether, with respect to the many advantages of The distance between the electrodes is 31 mm. The Ib it is related to the discharge current via Eq.
