A compact RF power inverter with reduced EMI for a CubeSat electrothermal micro-Thruster

Liang, Wei; Cui, Xiaofan; Raymond, Luke C; Gu, Lei; Charles, Christine; Boswell, Roderick; Davila, Juan Rivas


This paper presents a compact RF power inverter implemented with a PCB multi-resonant input filter for driving an electrothermal plasma micro-thruster, mini Pocket Rocket 3.0 (miniPR 3.0). This miniPR 3.0 and its driving electronics are part of an investigation seeking to add micro propulsion systems to low cost CubeSats. The proposed RF power inverter and multi-resonant input filter use only air core inductors. All inductors are toroidal and formed by PCB traces and vias allowing a planar and...[Show more]
