Abstract

Simulations of the 2kW Hall thruster of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory are carried out with the two-dimensional hybrid code HPHall-2. The different aspects of the plasma response and thruster performances are discussed. A preliminary comparison with experimental data is presented. There is a reasonable agreement in basic aspects of the plasma response but improvements or adjustments in the modelling of some phenomena are needed.
