Abstract:

THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DEMOSTRATE THE CAPABILITY OF POROUS METAL COOLING TO EFFECTIVELY REMOVE HEAT ABSORBED BY A MULTI-STAGE DEPRESSED COLLECTOR OF HIGH POWER B-FACTORY KLYSTRONS. HEAT TO BE REMOVED CAN TYPICALLY BE MANY KILOWATTS, AND PEAK HEAT FLUXES CAN EXCEED 1000 W/CM (2). EXISTING CHANNEL COOLING DESIGNS ARE GENERALLY LIMITED TO HEAT FLUXES OF LESS THAN 1000 W/CM(2). OROUS METAL COOLING WILL INCREASE THE POWER CAPABILITY AND DESIGN MARGIN FOR THE KLYSTRON COLLECTOR. TASKS TO BE COMPLETED IN PHASE I INCLUDE DEFINING DETAILED REQUIREMENTS FOR THE COLLECTOR, COMPLETING A CONCEPTUAL DESIGN OF A POROUS METAL COOLED HEAT EXCHANGER FOR THE TARGET APPLICATION, AND DEMOSTRATION OF A SUBSCALE TEST ARTICLE TO REMOVE AN ABSORBED HEAT FLUX GOAL OF 1000 W/CM(2) TO 2000 W/CM(2) USING POROUS METAL COOLING.
