Riassunto analitico
As the space journeys seems to become more diffuse and achievable, the manufacturers of the on-board system strive to reduce the cost and increase the reliability of their products, so the dimensions optimization of each parts of these system will gain increasing importance. <br><br>In this thesis, an innovative type of solenoid valve has been investigated and optimized. Due to the highly non-linear physical relationships inherent to electromagnetic devices, design and control of these valves has proven to be exceptionally challenging. To better predict valve performances, before that it was tested with experiments, a parametric code regarding the main aspects of the valve has been developed using the software Matlab and validated on an existing physical prototype. <br><br>This study has demonstrated that this innovative valve could be implemented in a Xenon Feeding System with positive consequences in terms of power consumption or space occupied, provided that a properly configuration has been selected and developed. The simulation and the experimental results have been matched well and this work could be taken as a starting point for future design purposes.
