Magnetic arch electrodeless plasma thruster experimental investigation
Mario Merino Martinez (UC3M)
Electrodeless plasma thrusters (EPT) aim to improve propulsive performances, system simplicity and versatility. Their design has not been optimized for operation. The new EPT, with U-shaped plasma source geometry, aim to eliminate problems encountered with classic EPT and to enable differential thrust vector control without moving parts.
