Abstract:

This article presents a type of theoretical statistical model which is capable of conveniently calculating high voltage solar array HVSA current collections given rise to by space plasma. Through analysis of physical processes, it is believed that HVSA power consumption caused by space plasma should not be ignored with regard to HVSA design.
