Abstract

Acceleration of plasma by area expansion is an area of significant interest to the high power inspace propulsion research. This paper verifies the applicability of a diverging channel to designing practical self-field magnetoplasmadynamic (MPD) thruster for higher specific impulse. Theoretical development for the expanding annular geometry is documented and analyzed for a partially ionized two temperature computational model that addresses potential understanding of effect of geometric scales, and predictions of self-field magnetic effects.
