An extended life and performance test of a low-power arcjet. [Francis M Curran; Thomas W Haag; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.]. An automated, cyclic life test was performed to demonstrate the reliability and endurance of a low power dc cycle arcjet thruster. Over hr and on-off cycles were accumulated which would represent the requirements for about 15 years of on-orbit : Thomas W.

The results show that performance indices of the arcjet thruster with 1kW arc heating are improved by amount of % in thrust and % in specific impulse more than frozen flow.

type on low power arcjet thruster performance. Three kinds of gases, i.e. argon, nitrogen and nitrogen/ammonia mixtures simulating decomposed hydrazine, were used as the propellants.

Important performance data, such as the thrust, the specific impulse, etc, were measured for various arc currents and mass flow rates. An automated, cyclic life test was performed to demonstrate the reliability and endurance of a low power dc cycle arcjet thruster.

The Surface Book really is the ultraportable that can do it all. It's got great performance, strong battery life and a gorgeous inch touch screen with stylus support.4/5. A modeling study is conducted to investigate the effect of hydrogen content in propellants on the plasma flow, heat transfer and energy conversion characteristics of low-power (kW class) arc-heated hydrogen/nitrogen thrusters (arcjets).Cited by: Low power arcjet life issues.

By M. Simon, T. Hardy, S. Knowles and F. Curran. Abstract. The present evaluation of the results of arcjet engine lifetime testing attempts to deepen understanding of the electrode erosion process, with a view to its minimization. Attention is given to the compatibility of materials with N2H4, the.

The Interaction Heating Facility (IHF), with an available power of over MW, is one of the highest-power arc jets available. It is a very flexible facility, capable of long run times of up to one hour, and able to test large samples in both a stagnation and flat plate configuration.

Low power arcjet technology provided definitive work on atomic species plume concentrations in low power hydrogen arcjet plumes. An extended life and performance test of a low-power arcjet.

Extended life coolants (ELCs) started gaining traction in the heavy-duty trucking and construction equipment industry about a decade ago. These coolants are so good they can in many cases last the. American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Sunrise Valley Drive, Suite Reston, VA An experimental investigation of a low power arcjet plume was conducted using emission spectroscopy.

A laboratory model arcjet incorporating a segmented anode was run on simulated hydrazine at a. Which browser is best for battery life: We test Edge vs. Chrome vs. Opera vs. Firefox In this power struggle, the answer is not what you'd : Gordon Mah Ung. The GE/RRC arcjet system has undergone thermal-mechanical qualification tests, cyclic-life tests, plume impact tests, as well as thermal loading and contamination experiments (refs.!.5_.

The thruster qualification test program included acceptance vibration tests, functional tests, performance maps, life Size: 1MB. The purpose of this paper is to present experimental results on the performance and operating life of a kW plasma jet rocket engine for space propulsion.

The arc jet rocket engine is currently the simplest of the different proposed electric propulsion : Richard R. John, John F. Connors, A. Mironer. Endurance Test of Microwave Engine a framework for a complete thruster model that can be used for long-life performance assessment and life validation.

including pulse rise time, mass flow rate, and arcjet geometry. 6 A hr/ cycle lifetest of a laboratory model thruster was completed 7 and flight-type systems have been built for life, performance, and satellite integration testing.

8,9 Langmuir probe surveys of the plume have measured electron number. 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 by: Performance test of a 14 cm xenon ion thruster. HAYAKAWA, K. MIYAZAKI and; Performance effects of interaction between a low-power arcjet and its power processing unit.
