Leo parameters

HI everyone,

I am trying to simulate an LEO orbit. I have some doubts and i want to ask if i am right..

LEO orbit: 619 km, 97.8°

I set up this in the global parameters:


  • I only put the pop1= 1E10 for electrons and ions
pop2=0 for both;
  • electron = 0.23 eV ions= 0.14 eV
*I have the S/C chasis negative, so i put electronDistrib: ionDistrib: PICVolDistrib is this ok or i have to put in the ionDistrib: HybridMZVolDistrib???
  • Ion type= O+ and the IonVx= 7500.
  • Linear Poisson= 0;
  • I change the duration and the plasma dt= 50,
i would appreaciate if someone could give a recommnendation to change another parameter, because the simulation doesn´t work good.

Thanks a lot… regards

Pablo Promenzio
