Thermal Control System for a Manned Space Station 820836
This paper describes the thermal control system designed to provide environmental and equipment cooling for a Manned Space Station. Ventilation flow patterns have been selected which maintain a comfortable shirt sleeve environment in zero gravity while providing contaminant process flow, as well as the versatility of providing both distributed and localized equipment cooling. The paper also describes process flow systems and equipment required to remove thermal, humidity, and contaminant loads. How the equipment interfaces with a liquid cooling loop system is detailed, including how thermoelectric heat pumps were included for use during degraded operations.
