AbstractElaboration of principles for constructing test facilities for the investigation of electromagnetic (EM) radiation of electric propulsion (EP) under ground conditions is considered. Based on the analysis of the available domestic and foreign test facilities, general requirements are identified and new approaches to the design of modeling stands, intended to solve practical problems in order to ensure electromagnetic compatibility of electric propulsion, were proposed. The recommendations on the arrangement of such facilities are given and options of engineering implementation of the next-generation test complexes to be used to investigate EM radiation of EP of various types are presented.
