  A subsonic-arc-attachment thruster design was scaled from a 30 kW 's vintage thruster to operate at nominally 3 kW. Performance measurements were obtained over a kW power range using hydrogen as the propellant. Several modes of operation were identified and were characterized by varying degrees of voltage instability. A stability map was developed showing that Cited by: 4.   ARCJET ENGINE PERFORMANCE- EXPERIMENT AND THEORY.

Performance and preliminary life test of a low power hydrazine engineering design model (EDM) arcjet thruster is carried out to characterize the performance of the thruster operated with different propellants and to demonstrate the life capability of the arcjet thruster accompanied with the power control unit (PCU).   performance limitations associated with frozen flow losses in arcjet thrusters. It provides the means of directly measuring the electronic ground state concentrations of molecular hydrogen. Measurements were performed for both cold-flow (see Boyd et al, Appendix C) and arc-heated flow conditions. In the cold-flow studies, experiments were in. Performance of a Miniaturized Arcjet John M.

  Arcjet thruster specific impulse vs nozzle area ratio for different propellants. Tchamber = K, Pcharnber = 1 MPa. which have some good performance qualities. The results of calculations showed (see Fig. 3) that when employing these gases, s specific impulse could be expected at the thruster chamber tempera- ture T = K. 3. A subsonic-arc-attachment thruster design was scaled from a 30 kW 's vintage thruster to operate at nominally 3 kW. Performance measurements .   The thrust was measured by a thrust stand that is developed for low power arcjet thrusters in BUAA, which has three thrust ranges, i.e. 0–10 mN, 0– mN and 0– mN, with an accuracy of 2%.The thrust stand consists of a frame assembly, flexural pivot assembly, movable beam assembly, reactive circuit and feedback force system, capacitor displacement sensor system, electric . An arcjet thruster has a constrictor and nozzle defining an arc chamber. The constrictor has an insulator and an anode. The constrictor defines a subsonic-to-supersonic transition zone axially coextensive with the inculator and anode. The anode is disposed side-by-side with the insulator and located upstream therefrom. A rod defines a cathode spaced from the anode by a gap.
