HTS electromagnet for space thruster
SuperOx has developed, manufactured and successfully tested an HTS electromagnet with a variable magnetic field profile for electric propulsion space thruster prototype. Very high values of efficiency, specific impulse, thrust and power were achieved.
With a mass of only 25% of its conventional counterpart, HTS magnet consumes 20 times less power to operate. State-of-the-art HTS technology contributed to the thrust and specific impulse increase by 300%, while improving efficiency by 700%.
