The invention relates to panels with integrated heat pipes and/or inserts, and in particular to methods of manufacturing such panels.

Under "panel with integrated heat pipes or inserts" means the panel containing plates, called upper and lower, between which is still installed heat pipes and/or inserts (for example, two or three, and also thirty or forty)separated by an intermediate structures such as honeycomb (or "Nida"). However, under the "inserts" imply a unit, for example, aluminum, which is used further for fixing the installed equipment.

Specialist in the art it is known that the manufacture of such panels can be done in two ways, containing several stages, starting with a flat sheet or marble slab), the upper and lower plates, the heat(s) of the pipe(pipes) and/or inserts, rods and intermediate structures.

The first method consists, primarily, in the processing cores to their full coating material, allowing their removal from moulds. Then you should put the bottom plate on a flat sheet and applying a layer of glue. Next, the intermediate patterns are placed at selected locations to determine the area of the heat pipe or insert. Then heat pipes and/or inserts are placed in the zones of their time is edenia between the intermediate structures. And, finally, part of the free space between the heat pipes and/or inserts and intermediate structures must be filled with glue swelling type. After that, the upper plate (or additional sheet) is placed on top of heat pipes and/or inserts and intermediate structures before contact with them after coating the lower surface of the upper plate layer of glue. Then the treated rods are inserted through the upper plate (or additional sheet) so that they are located in the space containing swellable adhesive on both sides of the heat pipes and/or inserts. The entire complex (including a marble slab) should be placed in an oven or autoclave for a specified period of time for polymerization of the panel. Then it should be removed from the form. Thereafter, the rods are extracted from the form. Then the rods must be clean.

It should be noted that in the case of using an additional sheet should be removed and glued permanently to the upper plate, called "flight plate" (use additional sheet allows you to reconcile the expansion of swelling of the adhesive without the use of x-ray analysis).

The second method consists, primarily, in the processing of the rods so as to fully cover the material, allowing you to remove them from the mold. Then you should have treated crucial and in selected areas of the marble slabs the corresponding zones of the placement of heat pipes or inserts on the bottom plate. Further, the bottom plate, pre-coated with adhesive, should be placed on a flat sheet so that through him you miss rods. Then, the intermediate structure located between the lines of the rods outside the zones of placing a heat pipe or insert. After heat pipes or insert must be pomnite in the areas of allocation between the lines of the rods. After that, the free space between the heat pipes and/or inserts and intermediate structures should be filled with glue swelling type. Then heat pipes and/or inserts and intermediate patterns should cover the top of the upper plate (or additional sheet) before contact with the latter, pre-coated bottom surface of the top plate layer of glue. The entire complex (including a marble slab) are placed in an oven or autoclave at a specified time for polymerization of the panel. Then the panel carefully removed from the mold, releasing from rods rigidly connected with a marble slab. And finally, you should clear the rods.

Now the second method is more preferable because the tolerances for the location of heat pipes and/or inserts are small (typically of the order of a millimetre). But these tolerances quickly selected, as soon as the number of heat pipes and/who do inserts becomes significant and the size of the panel increases.

In any of the used method, the number of stages is too large, and removal of cores of the panels is difficult and sometimes almost impossible due to the effect of adhesive on the shaft or on the location where the protection can be damaged when performing manipulations and/or when they are poorly protected. The situation, of course, can be improved by using, for example, conical studs and/or holes, with flattening, but it will increase the cost and will not reduce the number of necessary operations.

None of the known methods is entirely satisfactory, and the invention, therefore, aims to improve the situation by offering this manufacturing method, which does not require the use of rods while maintaining the accuracy of the location of heat pipes and/or inserts (and even increasing it, as it becomes less or equal to 1 mm), providing, thus, the ability to combine a large number of heat pipes and/or inserts, usually from thirty to forty, maybe even more.

To achieve this goal, we propose a method of manufacturing the panel(s) with built-in heat(s) tube(s) and/or inserts, comprising the steps:

a) preparation of the bottom plate, containing, in selected places, placed on both sides of the drop zones of the heat pipes and/or inserts, essentially square the sky tabs which can be bent upward from the upper surface,

b) partial straightening of the reeds in the direction of drop zones,

(C) the location of the heat pipes and/or inserts in each zone between the reeds and in contact with the outer surface of the bottom plate,

d) the end of the straightening of the reeds adjacent to the side surfaces of the heat pipes and/or inserts,

e) applying the first adhesive layer of a selected thickness on the side surfaces of the heat pipes and/or inserts,

f) the location of the intermediate structures of essentially the same height as the height of the heat pipes and/or inserts, with both sides of the lateral surfaces of each of the heat pipes and/or inserts and in contact with the top surface of the bottom plate,

g) placing the upper plate above the heat pipes and/or inserts and intermediate structures in contact with the latter.

The method according to the invention may contain other features which can be taken separately or in combination, and including:

- on the stage) you can place the bottom plate on a sheet or marble slab) selected flatness before the location of the heat pipes and/or inserts;

- in stage b) can be applied to the upper surface of the bottom plate one layer (second) adhesive before or after partial straightening of the reeds;

- on stage (g) before placing the top dps which you can apply on its lower surface intended for contact with heat pipes and/or inserts and intermediate structures) one layer (second) adhesive;

- in stage b) can be partially bend the tabs that they form an angle with the top surface of the bottom plate, is selected in the range between about 15 and about 45. For example, you can choose the angle of about 30;

- tabs can be made in the bottom plate by known means machining, laser cutting, sharp jet of fluid, punching;

- alternatively, the tabs may be additionally performed on the upper surface of the bottom plate;

- in stage C) on the sheet (or a marble slab) can be placed curb frame, and then place the bottom plate;

- after step g) can be done in step h), consisting in placing the assembled panel in an oven or autoclave;

- after surgery (h) can be done in phase i), which consists in removing from the mold assembled panels for its separation from marble slabs;

- you can use an intermediate structure type cell structures;

- you can use one (first) adhesive swelling type.

In the invention it is also proposed panel with built-in heat pipes(Oh) and/or inserts(Oh), made according to the method of manufacture shown above.

The invention, particularly applicable, although not limited to the manufacture of panels with integrated heat pipes and/or inserts designed for use in outer years is tion apparatus, for example satellites. It can be used in other areas, such as in aircraft or vehicles, as soon as there is the need to embed the heat pipe or the insert panel (or "metal sandwich").

The invention is further explained in the following description, which is not restrictive, with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which:

The attached drawings serve not only to complete the invention, but also, if necessary, for its definition. It is important to note that in figure 1-7 corresponding to the dimensions of the various elements are relative and do not represent the real size.

The aim of the invention is simplified manufacturing panels with integrated heat pipes and/or inserts without the use of fixing rods.

Below as a non-limiting example will be presented to the panel with integrated heat pipes, designed for installation on the spacecraft, such as satellites. But such panels can only contain inserts (instead of heat pipes) or the Association of the heat pipe(s) and inserts(CI). In addition, these panels can be at the established other equipment or systems, in particular in the field of aircraft or vehicles, if necessary, the introduction of a heat pipe or insert in the panel. Such panels may be of any size, such as 6 m 5 m (the size limit depends on the size of the autoclave in which the polymerization).

For implementing the method according to the invention must, above all, to ensure that the first stage (a)at least one bottom plate SI, for example, from aluminum, the upper plate of the SS, for example, of aluminum, heat pipes Ci (and/or insertion), usually linear forms (but which may take any geometric shape, such as L-, U-, V - or S-shaped), and intermediate structures Nj, for example, cell type (or "Nida") aluminum having a height essentially equal to the height of the heat pipes Ci. Preferably also have a flat surface (usually called a marble slab) MS having a sufficient flatness (typically of the order of 0.1 mm to 100 mm when the overall flatness of 2 mm).

The following concepts are lower(ll) and upper(Yaya) denote systematically or position relative to the marble slabs (MS), or orientation, respectively, to the upper bearing surface of the marble slabs (MS) and is identical to this (upper) bearing surface (and, therefore, opposed to it).

In accordance with the invention and as shown in Fi is .1, the bottom plate SI contains the tabs (or "stoppers") L essentially flat, which initially are essentially parallel to its upper surface, and may be deflected from her up.

Under the tab " means any item (or foot, or clip)made integral with the plate SI and which can be bent by about 90 relative to the upper surface of the mentioned bottom plate SI.

These tabs can be manufactured by any well-known specialist in this field by the way. For example, as shown in figure 1, they can be made in the bottom plate SI machining, laser cutting, sharp jet of fluid or punching. For example, in the case of machining, they can be executed by the cutter in 5/10thmillimeters in diameter. In this case, the lugs L are initially in the areas of incision ZD bottom plate SI.

Alternatively, the tabs L can be imposed on the upper surface of the bottom plate SI. In this case, they are made separately and then rigidly fixed at the level of the selected areas on the upper surface of the bottom plate SI, for example, by welding or gluing.

In the example schematically shown in figure 1, the lugs L are essentially triangular (or V-shaped) form. But it is not mandatory. Acceptable any form of fixation (or podklinivanija) when onocr the nom bending, in this part, adjacent to the heat pipe may be semicircular or Crescent.

These tabs L are located in selected areas of the bottom plate SI on both sides of the drop zones ZCi, which must be installed heat pipes Ci. The reeds L, we can say, installed in series, which limit the lateral edge zones of placing a heat pipe ZCi. Zone ZNj the upper surface of the bottom plate SI, which are placed on both sides of the drop zones ZCi heat pipes, designed for intermediate structures (or Nida) Nj. In the schematic and non-limiting example depicted in figure 1-7, the bottom plate SI contains two drop zones heat pipes ZC1 and ZC2 (i=1 and 2) and three zones of the intermediate structures of ZN1-ZN3 (j=1-3). However, the number of drop zones heat pipes ZCi and zones of intermediate structures ZNj may be significantly greater than 2 and, if necessary, for example, 30 or 40, even 60.

The number of reeds L, bounding each area of the heat pipes ZCi, varies depending on the size and geometry (or shape) of the heat pipes. For example, you can provide them a number from 6 to 8 and more for each of the heat pipes Ci.

As soon as the lugs L are installed, the bottom plate SI, at least, can be treated to increase the adhesion of the glue.

In the second stage (b), shown in figure 2, the lugs L of the bottom plate SI part is but bent in the direction of the drop zones heat pipe ZCi.

This partial extension allows you to place heat pipes Ci in their drop zones ZCi. It is easy rotation of all of the reeds L that they form a given angle relative to the upper surface of the bottom plate SI. When the tabs L are not overlaid, they are allocated from a zone cut ZD.

The angle of rotation is, for example, from about 15 to about 45. You can, for example, to select the angle of bending is approximately 30, as schematically depicted in figure 2.

In this second step (b) the upper surface of the bottom plate SI may be, if necessary, covered with a layer of the second adhesive SE, before or after partial straightening of the reeds. The adhesive layer SE can be applied, for example, on the upper surface in the form of a film of small thickness, typically 100-150 g per 1 m2or thickness of approximately 0.1 mm, the adhesive SO taken, for example, type redux 312.

At the third stage (C), schematically shown in figure 3, heat pipes Ci have in their respective areas of allocation ZCi, i.e. between pairs of rows of reeds L, the bounding area ZCi. This arrangement is intended to ensure contact the bottom surface of the heat pipes Ci with the top surface of the bottom plate SI for fixed mounting on the latter with a layer of a second adhesive SE.

To improve the adhesion of heat pipes Ci to the upper surface of the lower p is the ITA SI on heat pipes Ci can also apply a layer of the second adhesive SO before you install them in the area ZCi.

However, as shown in figure 3, to facilitate the manufacture of the panel p of the bottom plate SI may be placed on a flat surface (or a marble slab) MS before the location of the heat pipes Ci in their drop zones ZCi. In this case, the bottom surface of the bottom plate SI is placed on the upper surface of the marble slabs MILLISECONDS.

The manufacture of the panel P can be further simplified by placing the bottom plate SI inside curb frame SV placed on the upper surface of the marble slabs MILLISECONDS.

In the fourth stage (d), schematically depicted in figure 4, again unbend the tabs L to their attachment to the lateral surfaces of the heat pipes Ci. At the end of the final bending angle between the reeds L and the bottom surface of the SI becomes essentially equal to 90. Heat pipes Ci, therefore, well positioned and secured in their respective areas of allocation ZCi.

On the fifth step (e), schematically depicted in figure 5, put a layer of first adhesive SE on the side surfaces of the heat pipes Ci, as well as in the fully deflected tabs L. This layer (first adhesive has a predetermined thickness. For example, choose a thickness of about 2 mm (but it can be less or more depending on the type (first) layer SE glue used).

This (first) adhesive SE is preferably swelling, that is, it transforms into a sticky foam and apolnet all voids, educated Nida Nj with the side surfaces of the heat pipes Ci. For example, you can use glue CE type redux 206.

At the sixth step (f), schematically depicted in Fig.6, place the intermediate structure (or Nida) Hj in the relevant areas of plant ZNj, i.e. on both sides of the heat pipes Ci.

This arrangement is intended to ensure contact of the inner surface of the intermediate structures of Nj with the top surface of the bottom plate SI for their immobilization on the last due to a layer of the second adhesive to which it was applied.

To improve the adhesion of the intermediate structures of Nj to the upper surface of the bottom plate SI intermediate structure, Nj may also, if necessary, be covered with a layer of the second adhesive before placing them in areas of installation ZNj.

It is important to note that the fifth (e), and sixth (f) the steps can be interchanged. In this case, first place the intermediate structure Nj in their respective areas of plant ZNj, then put a layer of first adhesive SE between the side surfaces of the heat pipes Ci and adjacent intermediate structures Nj.

At the seventh step (g), schematically depicted in Fig.7, the top plate SS is placed over the upper surfaces of the heat pipes Ci and intermediate structures Nj that its bottom surface is in contact with the said upper surface is due.

To improve the immobilization of the upper plate of SS relative to the heat pipes Ci and intermediate structures Nj its lower surface covered with a layer of the second adhesive prior to installation on the place.

At this stage the various elements (SI, Ci, L, Nj and SS), forming the panel P, is already connected.

The method may include the eighth step (h), in which the panel P with integrated heat pipes, preferably placed on a marble slab MS is injected into a furnace or autoclave at a certain time and under certain pressure. This placement in the furnace is intended for polymerization of the first and second types of glue (when they are used for this purpose) and, consequently, the final consolidation of the various elements (SI, Ci, L, Nj and SS) in the assembled panel P with respect to each other.

In this case, the method ends the ninth stage (i) removing from the mold, designed to separate the assembled panel P from marble slabs MILLISECONDS.

The method according to the invention provides significant advantages over known methods, in particular:

- exception use rods and, therefore, the initial extraction of the forms and their treatment in prison, as well as savings on manufacturing,

- a runtime exception holes in the top plate, and a marble slab for the passage of rods

- a runtime exception holes in the accompanying pre is the metal (as, for example, coated with Teflon fiberglass)used to prevent sticking,

the exception of the removal action rods, which is very delicate

- automatic and very precise installation of the heat pipes and/or inserts and intermediate structures

- lack of redundancy of the drop zones (first) swelling glue,

- the use of a single polymerization plate regardless of the type of the panel,

- one stage polymerization instead of two,

- eliminates the risk of inability to eject from the mold.

FIELD: control of temperature of spacecraft and their components.

SUBSTANCE: proposed method includes measurement of temperatures in spacecraft temperature control zones, comparison of these temperatures with high and low permissible magnitudes and delivery of heat to said zones at low limits. Heat is delivered by conversion of electrical energy into thermal energy. Power requirements are measured at different standard time intervals of spacecraft flight forecasting orientation of its solar batteries to Sun. Magnitude of electric power generated by solar batteries is determined by forecast results. Measured magnitudes of consumed electric power are compared with forecast data. According to results obtained in comparison, flight time is divided into sections at excess of energy generated by solar batteries over consumed power, equality of these magnitudes and shortage of generated energy. High magnitudes of temperature are maintained at excess energy sections by conversion of difference of generated energy and consumed energy into heat. In case of reduction of generated energy in the course of changing the orientation of solar batteries on Sun, temperature in these zones is reduced to low limits at simultaneous equality of energies. In case of further increase of generated energy, temperature in said zones is increased to high limits at equality of energies. Then, in the course of change of generated energy, temperature correction cycles in temperature control zones are repeated.

EFFECT: avoidance of excess of consumed energy above generated energy of solar batteries.
