Abstract

The Lunar surface is electrostatically charged by several mechanisms. The dust particles which are resting on the lunar surface are also charged and levitated. We have taken study model and simulate the model with different Solar Elevation Angles. The Lunar surface charging is depends on the solar elevation angle. When solar elevation angle increases, surface potential also increases with 5.2 V up to the 900, after 900 its start to decreases with -60.31 V up to the 1800. The Electric Field and Electrostatic Force are change with the solar elevation angle, as same as surface potential characteristic. If electric field or potential increases then surface particles are levitated higher. So, applying concept of solar elevation angle on study model we can easily say at which solar elevation angle the surface potential and electric field is Minimum for safe landing at lunar site for future mission.
