Progress in Astronautics and Aeronautics, Volume 9: Electric Propulsion Development covers the proceedings of the Second Electric Propulsion Conference of the American Rocker Society, held in Berkeley, California on March 14-16, 1962. The conference focuses on the existing problems in electric propulsion and their possible solutions. This book is organized into four sections encompassing 35 chapters. The first section deals with the thermodynamics of arcs; the problems of heat and momentum transfer; the chemical processes within arcs; the arc system materials; and the arc jet design problems. The second section considers the problems of ion systems, the various ion sources, and the neutralization of ion beams. This section also looks into the basic ionization processes, the production and charging of heavy particles, the corrosive properties of cesium, and the ion-optical designs. The third section describes various plasma systems, including helical transmission lines, pulsed pinch accelerators, coaxial systems, and j x B accelerators. The theoretical analyses of these systems are briefly examined. The fourth section includes papers on flight testing of electric propulsion models, on vertical rocket probes, and on satellites, This section also discusses some advanced concepts in electric propulsion, such as air scooping during ascent through the atmosphere, systems design and optimization, and planetary and interplanetary missions. This book is of great value to physicists, space engineers and designers, as well as researchers in the fields of astronautics and aeronautics.

Throughout most of the twentieth century, electric propulsion was considered the technology of the future. Now, the future has arrived. This important new book explains the fundamentals of electric propulsion for spacecraft and describes in detail the physics and characteristics of the two major electric thrusters in use today, ion and Hall thrusters. The authors provide an introduction to plasma physics in order to allow readers to understand the models and derivations used in determining electric thruster performance. They then go on to present detailed explanations of: Thruster principles Ion thruster plasma generators and accelerator grids Hollow cathodes Hall thrusters Ion and Hall thruster plumes Flight ion and Hall thrusters Based largely on research and development performed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and complemented with scores of tables, figures, homework problems, and references, Fundamentals of Electric Propulsion: Ion and Hall Thrusters is an indispensable textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students who are preparing to enter the aerospace industry. It also serves as an equally valuable resource for professional engineers already at work in the field.

The aim of this thesis was the design of a retractable, electric propulsion system for sailplanes, which could eliminate the main drawbacks of internal combustion engines. The design process was based on a number of modern sailplanes, within the 12 - 15 meter class, with sustainer operation in mind. One of the goals was to create a universal propulsion system that could be fitted to various aircrafts. The first part of the project concerned the selection of the key components of an electric propulsion system. First, the required power and thrust were calculated, and based on the obtained results a suitable electric motor was chosen. For this motor, an electronic controller was selected. Later, the estimation of propeller parameters was performed. Finally, battery basics were discussed and a battery was selected. The second part of the project concerned CAD modeling of the retractable electric propulsion system. The used materials were discussed in the beginning. The design process focused on two main assemblies: the propeller folding mechanism and the retractable structure. The complete result, the individual sub-assemblies and the most important solutions were presented. The use of composite materials was an important point of this thesis. Performance analysis was done after the system had been designed. The retractable electric propulsion system was designed with optimum results. A fullscale CAD model was created. The designed propulsion system can be considered as universal due to its relatively low weight, adequate power and compact size in the retracted position. Custom-made accessories facilitate mounting. A visit to the glider manufacturer Allstar PZL was the source of information about possible mounting solutions and battery placement options. The designed propulsion system can be used as a sustainer for all designated sailplanes. Self-launching proved possible in case of the lightest sailplanes. With similar power and flight duration, the electric propulsion system should be able to compete with petrol powered sustainer systems within the same class.
