PhD Thesis

Fluid-kinetic models for space plasma thrusters


Eduardo Ahedo Galilea (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.
