Liquid Propellant Gas Generation Systems(STABILIZED Jun 2013) AIR1343B

This information report presents a preliminary discussion of liquid propellant gas generation (LPGG) systems. A LPGG system, as used herein, is defined as a system which stores a liquid propellant and, on command, discharges and converts the liquid propellant to a gas. The LPGG system can interface with a gas-to-mechanical energy conversion device to make up an auxiliary power system. Figure 1 shows a block diagram of LPGG system components which include a propellant tank, propellant expulsion system, propellant control and a decomposition (or combustion) chamber.
The purpose of this report is to provide general information on the variety of components and system arrangements which can be considered in LPGG design, summarize advantages and disadvantages of various approaches and provide basic sizing methods suitable for initial tradeoff purposes.
