State Estimation for the VASIMR Plasma Engine
Lynn, Shane and Ringwood, John and Del Valle Gamboa, Juan Ignacio (2008) State Estimation for the VASIMR Plasma Engine. Signals and Systems Conference, 2008. . pp. 24-29. ISSN 0537-9989
This paper presents work on the application of virtual metrology techniques to the VAriable Specific Impulse Magnetoplasma Rocket (VASMIR) engine. The work concentrates on the estimation of internal temperatures of the rocket using state space models and Optical Emission Spectroscopy (OES). These estimations are useful as direct thermal measurements will not be available in the final system design.
