Solar Electric Propulsion (SEP)

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Design, develop, and qualification test a high-power, 12.5 kW Hall Effect thruster. - Design, develop, and test a high-power (300-600V) processing unit (PPU) using innovative silicon carbide circuits to overcome the challenges of high power PPU design, and thereby enable the development of future high power electric propulsion systems. - Demonstrate full, integrated performance of 300-600V PPU with 12.5-kW Hall Effect thruster strings.
