Numerical simulations and experiments have been conducted to investigate the effects of a filter on low frequency oscillation in Hall thrusters. With one-dimensional quasineutral hydrodynamic model, the effects of filter components are studied by way of simulation computations. The simulation results show that with proper filter parameters, low frequency oscillation can be stabilized. Further, an eigenvalue study of the linear stability has been performed and the stability conditions according to filter parameters are given. Finally, the theoretical analysis is validated qualitatively through experiments.
