Computer Model of Satellite Thermal Control System Using a Controlled Capillary Pumped Loop 932306
A universal autonomous controlled heat transferring module on base of two-phase loop with capillary pump have been elaborated. This module consists of one evapourator and one radiator-condenser. Various variants for suggested module control by using of active or passive elements, providing the CPL start-up, restarting and temperature regulation, have been considered. There is determined a structure concept and recommendations on mathematical modeling of Thermal Control System (TCS), made on base of several controlled heat transferring modules with capillary pumps, are given. There are given results of computer experiment with mathematical model of artificial Earth satellite payload TCS. This TCS consists of four controlled, independent in power supply, CPL, which start-up and control are carried out by using of passive devices.
