Download or read book entitled Electrospray Thrusters for Spacecraft Propulsion by author: Manuel Gamero-Castano which was release on 15 December 2022 and published by Elsevier with total page 220 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Spacecraft missions require a simple, high performing and highly reliable propulsion system to meet performance requirements. Unlike many other types of spacecraft thrusters, electrospray devices can be successful in a variety of propulsion applications. Due to their small size and flexible form factor, electrosprays are well-suited for primary propulsion, attitude control and formation flying. Electrospray Thrusters for Spacecraft Propulsion: Fundamentals and Technology covers the fundamentals and underlying physics of electrosprays and how they are used in controlling thruster performance. The book begins with a historical overview exploring how this technology has been rapidly growing with the emergence of small satellites and CubeSats. It covers a variety of topics such as electrospray plumes, interfacing with the spacecraft, dual propulsion, fluid feed systems, hybrid concepts, and future developments. This book is for aerospace and mechanical engineers, researchers, and advanced students taking electric propulsion courses. Provides a comprehensive understanding of the physical implementations, past failures, and current working implementations of electrosprays Discusses the origins of electrospray technology, the historical hurdles, and directions in which the technology is moving Features an up-to-date description of existing thruster/spacecraft interface and interaction with spacecraft
