Development of Loop Heat Pipe with Pressure Regulator 2006-01-2171
This paper describes different methods of loop heat pipe (LHP) temperature control as well as the result of mathematical modeling and testing of LHP with regulators. The paper provides the examples of LHP with pressure regulator application for different flight experiments and spacecraft service systems. The schematics of the most typical systems and LHP performance of these systems are presented in this paper. It is shown, that LHP with pressure regulator is the most exact and the reliable decision of the equipment thermal control in space systems.
