Système d'alimentation en propergol pour un arcjet de faible puissance

Low power arcjet propellant feed system

Treibstoff-Fördersystem für einen Arcjet niedriger Leistung

Abstract

A lower power arcjet propellant feed system for delivering propellant to a low power arcjet. The low power arcjet propellant feed system includes a liquid propellant storage chamber for storing a liquid propellant. A gas generator in communication with the liquid propellant storage chamber generates a gaseous propellant upon receipt of the liquid propellant from the liquid propellant storage chamber. A gas plenum in communication with the gas generator accumulates the gaseous propellant from the gas generator up to a desired pressure. Actively controllable valves actively control the flow of the liquid propellant into the gas generator and actively control the flow of the resultant gaseous propellant out of the gas generator and into the gas plenum up to the desired pressure. A substantially continuous and stable low flow rate of gaseous propellant is then delivered to the low power arcjet.
