SPECTRA OF LOWER HYBRID WAVES REQUIRED TO SUSTAIN SIGNIFICANT CURRENTS
A simple quasilinear model is used to compute the current which can be sustained by a power source with the spectrum of a given shape. It is shown, firstly, that the current observed in PETULA B can be explained by theoretically determined broad spectra. Secondly, it is shown that narrower spectra (with which it is impossible to sustain a significant current) can be made very efficient by minute modifications. A high N-//EL wing, containing only a few percent of the total power, is sufficient to enhance the current generated by a few orders of magnitude. This current is of the same order as that obtained with a broad spectrum.
