Thermal Modeling Methods of Li-Ion Batteries

Tuesday, August 21, 10:00am – 12:00pm, Clipper Conference Room

This short course provides participants with an in-depth discussion on three aspects of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries that are relevant to the TFAWS community. First an understanding of Li-ion battery fundamentals is provided through a brief discussion centered around (a) the aerospace industry’s choice to use Li-ion batteries, (b) general performance characteristics and (c) electrochemical reaction basics. Secondly, Li-ion battery heat generation is discussed with respect to (a) Ohmic heating that occurs during nominal charge-discharge operations and (b) the heating mechanisms associated with a thermal runaway event. Understanding both heating mechanisms is critical to the development of effective thermal management systems. Lastly, this course will lead the participants through the basic construction process of a thermal model of a Li-ion battery assembly that is capable of simulating nominal heating and thermal runaway heating. The overall goal of the course is to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of both the fundamental and thermal aspects of Li-ion batteries.

Future of 2 Phase Thermal Control (Panel Discussion)

Wednesday, August 22, 10:30am – 12:00pm, Clipper Conference Room

Two-phase thermal control systems in microgravity, with significant density differences between phases, pose challenges for many current and proposed spacecraft systems. Because of the lack of understanding of these effects and the inability to scale multiphase systems in low gravity, NASA generally opts to avoid using two-phase systems for spacecraft despite the significant performance increases and lower mass. The goal of this panel discussion will be to identify key technology gaps and challenges that thermal engineers face today when considering a two-phase thermal management system.

The panel discussion will begin with a brief overview of recent and on-going NASA projects designed to elicit a fundamental understanding of gas-liquid two phase behavior as it applies to thermal control systems in the Space environment. The projects/experiments discussed will range from boiling/condensation fundamentals, heat pipes, and cryogenic storage systems. We will identify what fundamental question or questions are being addressed in each case.

An overview will be also be presented to address future mission needs and the specific advantages multi-phase systems offer, in particular for low cost planetary science missions and enabling missions in extreme environments. The need for efficient heat transfer with concurrent spatial and temporal temperature stability to reduce thermally-induced noise drives a serious look at multi-phase systems as a solution. Furthermore, missions to environments such as the Venus surface or penetration of ice layers in ocean worlds will likely require them.

Time will be allocated at the end of this session to allow comments and questions from attendees. The intent is to use this session as a starting point to advocate for a coordinated technology development effort in this area.

JWST Thermal Analysis and Thermal Vacuum Discussion

Thursday, August 23, 1:00pm – 5:00pm, Clipper Conference Room

Overview of Test Planning, Preparations, and Conduct of the James Webb Space Telescope Combined Optical Telescope Element and Integrated Science Instrument Module (OTIS) Thermal Vacuum/Thermal Balance Test in the JSC Chamber A.

 Topic List

13:15 – 14:00 OTIS description and test objectives, ISIM and OTE precursor testing.

 14:00 – 14:45 Chamber A capabilities and modifications to complete thermal vacuum testing.

 14:45 – 15:00 Break

 15:00 – 15:45 Highly specialized GSE required for JWST verification testing.

15:45 – 16:30 Test result, hurricane Harvey impacts, and lessons learned.

The cryogenic thermal vacuum/thermal balance test of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) combined Optical Telescope Element (OTE)/Integrated Science Instrument Module (ISIM), known as the OTIS, at the Johnson Space Center (JSC) Chamber A in 2017 was an extremely complex test due to the size and intricacies of the telescope, complex test objectives, and cryogenic temperatures required for test. The final thermal vacuum test of the combined flight OTE and ISIM elements was prefaced by years of modifications to chamber facilities and development of highly specialized Ground Support Equipment (GSE), and included three extensive precursor tests of non-flight and flight hardware in the JSC Chamber A to establish safe and optimal test operational procedures. Extensive efforts were expended prior to the test to assure safety of personnel and flight hardware during off-nominal events. Much of the planning was based in part on experiences during the ISIM element testing in the GSFC Space Environment Simulator (SES) and the OTE precursor testing in JSC Chamber A. This planning for off-nominal events proved especially prescient for the OTIS test, as Hurricane Harvey struck the Houston area during the test in August 2017, and consequences for the precious payload could have been severe.

This combined presentation from the OTIS payload thermal, JSC facilities, and OTIS GSE test groups, defines the JWST observatory and mission in general, and the ISIM and OTE elements in more detail. It lists the OTIS test thermal objectives, critical constraints and limitations, and test planning. JSC Chamber A facility capabilites, and the extensive modifications performed to ready it for the OTIS test, are described. The highly specialized GSE developed for the test, including thermal boundaries, optical equipment, and data system development, are also described. Planned versus actual thermal profiles, general thermal model predictions versus test results, consequences of Hurricane Harvey, and lessons learned from the test are shown.
