Abstract
THIS PROJECT ASSESSES THE RELATIVE BENEFITS AND PENALTIES ASSOCIATED WITH THE USE OF DISPERSED AND CENTRALIZED REFRIGERATION/HEAT PUMPS FOR THERMAL CONTROL OF SPACECRAFT. THE PERFORMANCE AND LIMITATIONS OF FREE-PISTON STIRLING CYCLE HEAT PUMPS (EITHER LINEAR ELECTRIC MOTOR OR FREE-PISTON STIRLING ENGINE DRIVEN) FOR SPACECRAFT WASTE HEAT MANAGEMENT WILL BE DETERMINED, AND THE CHARACTERISTICS OF AN ELECTRIC MOTOR DRIVEN STIRLING HEAT PUMP WILL BE DEMONSTRATED THROUGH LABORATORY TESTING OF A BREADBOARD MODEL CONFIGURED FOR PUMPING WASTE HEAT TO AN ELEVATED REJECTION TEMPERATURE.
