Experimental Evaluation of Copper Braid Thermal Conductance for IRS-1C Spacecraft 941471
“Tinned Copper Braid” is planned to be used in IRS-1C spacecraft for the thermal control of the detector of the “Middle Infra Red” (MIR) band of LISS III Camera. The thermal conductance of the braid was evaluated experimentally in the temperature range of -65°C to +35°C by employing the calorimetric technique. The measured thermal conductance of the 215mm long copper braid varies from 0.051 to 0.056 W/°C at different temperatures in the specified range. An error estimation has been performed which shows a maximum uncertainty of better than ± 5% on the conductance value measured.
