PhD Thesis

Fluid-kinetic models for space plasma thrusters


Eduardo Ahedo Galilea (UC3M) and Adrián Domínguez (UC3M)


The work to be developed in this thesis consists on improving the capacities of an  existing 2D hybrid-PIC code, HYPHEN, and using it to run numerical simulations of the discharge of the Hall Effect Thruster. The objectives are to characterize the discharge and better understand its physics.
