Electric propulsion system proven to be a suitable and efficient alternative for conventional propulsion systems .Ion thrusters is one of the electric propulsion systems. It has very high specific impulse generation (Isp) and consumes very low amount of fuel. Ion thrusters can easily compete with chemical rockets propulsion, even if the thrust produce is very low compares to chemical propulsion. Ion propulsion system can be used for various space missions like orbit station keeping for geostationary satellite, orbit and altitude controlling, multi-goal missions. Ion thrusters are more compatible for deep space missions as they are tested for endurance test where as chemical proportion is highly unsuitable for deep space mission.
