Exploring Electric Propulsion Systems for Small Satellites

Abstract:

In this paper, we dive deep into the world of spacecraft propulsion, focusing specifically on the exciting realm of electric propulsion systems tailored for small satellites. Electric propulsion holds immense promise, offering a host of advantages over traditional chemical systems, including improved efficiency, reduced propellant consumption, and enhanced mission flexibility. Small satellites, with their compact nature, stand to gain substantially from the versatility and scalability of electric propulsion, enabling extended missions and more agile maneuvers. Throughout this paper, we'll unravel the intricate workings of electric propulsion, compare different types of systems, and uncover the latest advancements in the field. Additionally, we'll tackle head-on the challenges and opportunities presented by integrating electric propulsion into small satellite platforms, delving into topics like power management, thermal control, and optimization strategies. Through a thorough examination of existing research and real-world case studies, we aim to provide valuable insights into the current landscape of spacecraft propulsion and chart a course for future exploration.
