Abstract

The amplitude of discharge current oscillation has been measured for various hollow anode widths and axial positions using a 1kW class anode layer type Hall thruster. As a result, there was plasma density threshold for stable discharge. Structure of electrical sheath inside a hollow anode was numerically analyzed using fully kinetic 2D3V Particle -in-Cell (PIC) and Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method. The computed sheath area was not so sensitive to the hollow width.
