Empirical models of distribution laws of pulse noise from stationary plasma thruster
Aerospace propulsion engineering
AbstractExperimental researches of statistical characteristics of own electromagnetic radiation of stationary plasma thrusters have shown, that the given radiation can carry strongly pronounced not thermal (pulse) character and represents a pulse noise for onboard radio systems. In the given work mathematical models, applicable for the description of distribution laws of such radiation which knowledge is necessary for an estimation of a noise stability of space radio communication systems are systematized and analyzed.
