Plasma Discharge

Topic: Space Plasma Discharge Transients from EMA3D

Presenter: Bryon Neufeld

Abstract: We demonstrate EMA3D’s ability to predict discharge transients from surface charging in a space plasma.  In our analysis, we obtain surface charging results in a space plasma environment and then evaluate discharge transients to cables and antennas.  We consider spacecraft-to-plasma, surface-to-surface, and spacecraft-to-spacecraft (rendezvous) discharges.  From a single geometric model, EMA3D allows the user to perform the entire space charging analysis, as well as seamlessly transition to other EMC simulations including lightning, HIRF, and conducted emissions.
