Commercial Micro Heat-Pipes Installation Into High Dissipation Space Equipments: On Ground Testing Preliminary Results 2002-01-2330
Commercial heat pipes installation is proposed for a high performance space born DC/DC converter module. The module is the core of the Remote Power Distribution Assembly (RPDA) power unit for the payloads on board the Columbus Module of he International Space Station ISS.
An experimental campaign is performed to characterize the thermal conductance of a copper water micro heat pipe, as a function of the power and of the temperature.
