Estimation of Energy Requirements of Eco-nauts in the Closed Ecology Experiment Facilities (CEEF) 2005-01-3004

Preliminary seven-day habitation experiments without complete closure of the habitation module were performed in the Closed Ecology Experiment Facilities (CEEF) to obtain information for the closed habitation and to prepare for the actual closed habitation experiments to be launched in September 2005. Energy requirements have been estimated for habitant candidates in closed habitation experiments (to be called Eco-nauts). This paper presents the calculations of Eco-nauts' energy requirements using records of life activities during the preliminary experiments and compares them with the expected energy supply from the CEEF.
