The efficiency (ApDVAB) decreased with absorbed particles. Solar cell efficiency (A pt ) increases with decreasing solar array temperature as the spacecraft altitude increases. The power actually produced by the solar cells is then divided between the spacecraft systems (Psc) and the power conditioning for the ion engines (A pc) .
