Abstract:

The Transient Pulse Monitor TPM detects and characterizes static discharges on orbiting satellites. The TPM instrument provides a suite of electrical transient sensors to support the Photovoltaics Space Power Plus Diagnostics PASP Plus experiment. It measures the transient electric fields and currents that result from electrostatic discharges and thus reveals whether operations of the PASP Plus experiment lead to discharges.
