Investigation of high voltage spacecraft system interactions with plasma environments
13th International Electric Propulsion Conference
The exposure of high voltage spacecraft systems to the charged particle environment of space can produce interactions that will influence system operation. An experimental investigation of these interactions has been undertaken for insulator and conductor test surfaces biased up to t1 kV in a simulated low Earth orbit charged particle environment. It has been found that these interactions are controlled by the insulator surfaces ourrounding the biased conductors.
