In the frame of an ESA project, CSEM in collaboration with other partners has developed an innovative Attitude Orbit Control System concept that relies on a Reaction Sphere. We propose to use one unique magnetic bearing Reaction Sphere whose spin axis and angular velocity can be positioned by dedicated control. The design is based on a 3-D permanent magnet motor obtained with a multi pole rotor ...

In recent years, the single-sided linear induction motor (SLIM) has been the most suitable choice for electric vehicles of the wheel and touchless type. The reason is simplicity in manufacturing, capability in applying direct force, moving and braking and low pollution. To study the influence of air gap between the stator and mover of linear induction motor the prototype model of SLIM used as ...

HIIPER is an experimental space propulsion device using a helicon and an IEC as a plasma generation and acceleration stage, respectively. There is an experiment in progress, but for true rapid iteration and to model the performance of the engine, COMSOL is a strong candidate for fulfilling these roles and continuing with the project until its production phase. The simulation is built with very ...

利用惯性力学和电磁学,研究了一个金属小车沿着磁铁铺就的轨道做减速直线运动。其中,小车也可以看成是携带等量的磁铁剩磁,且沿着铁磁轨道减速运动。通过赋予小车一个初速度,例如100 m/s,然后再根据实际情况、赋予它一个特征密度,即小车有了一定的质量。当认为小车沿水平方向的轨道减速运动,忽略重力、空气阻力等其他一些影响因素时,小车将只受电磁的洛伦兹力的作用,而逐渐减速到零。 利用最新版的 COMSOL Multiphysics®,建模过程中,主要用到了“磁场和电场(mef)”和“全局常微分和微分代数方程(ge)”接口,涉及到的动力学和电磁学方程为 dv/dt=F/m F ⃗=∫_(V_vehicle)▒〖(J_induced ) ⃗×B ⃗dv〗 J_(i_y)=σ(v_z∙B_x-v_x∙B_z ) v 为小车即时速度,F 为洛伦兹力,J 为感应产生的涡流,v 为速度,B ...

Electron Drift in Xe Gas

The XENON Dark Matter Experiment utilizes ultra-pure xenon (Xe) as a target for particle interaction in the effort to detect dark matter particles. To measure the purity of Xe, a gas purity monitor (GPM) is being developed which drifts electrons through Xe gas to detect impurities that contribute to charge attenuation. An axially-symmetric model is used to simulate the electric field generated ...

Traveling Plasma Wave Levitation of Objects Supported by Coanda Effect - new

R. Eisenschmid[1]
[1]OPTIMA pharma GmbH, Schwäbisch Hall, Germany

Electrostatically excited plasma waves can induce a “plasma wind” in the surrounding media or air. The lifted object has a shape of a flying saucer, just for better illustration. A travelling plasma wave propulsion requires a pre-ionized media around the surface and a travelling electrostatic field. A simplified plasma model was used to set up an EFD (electro fluid dynamic) approach into a ...
