      An alkali‐metal Variable Conductance Heat Pipe (VCHP) was designed to allow multiple stops and restarts of the Stirling engine. A VCHP was designed for the Advanced Stirling Radioisotope Generator, with a °C heater head by: Approved for public release; distribution is unlimitedA variable conductance heat pipe with a length to diameter ratio of 96 to 1 was designed and constructed. The performance characteristics of both the conventional and gas loaded variable conductance modes of operation were : Wayne Ives Humphreys.

    Heat pipe routines built into SINDA/FLUINT provide fast system-level solutions to modeling heat pipes when a full two-phase solution is not required. Both constant conductance (CCHP, also called FCHP), with or without noncondensible gas (NCG), and variable conductance (VCHP) pipes .

VCHPs (variable conductance Heat Pipes) are used to control the temperature of equipment within narrow limits despite variations in heating load or cooling efficiency. A VCHP may also be used to avoid backwards conductance if the cooler happened to overheat, when it is Cited by: 1.

The heat pipe developed is titanium – ammonia –gas loaded variable heat pipe which has a heated reservoir (VCHP). Three grams as initial mass of pure nitrogen % was charged to the VCHP as non- condensable gas. This study has clarified that titanium is very desirable as heat pipe File Size: KB.

If you are just getting interested in heat pipes, Dunn and Reay is an excellent starting point. It covers all of the basics, which haven't changed since the book was written. It doesn't cover newer heat pipe variations, such as Pressure Controlled Heat Pipes and Variable Conductance Heat Pipes, or Loop Heat Pipes (LHPs).3/5(2).

Conductance Heat Pipe (CCHP), it is wise to start with the layout of a CCHP. There are three sections of a basic heat pipe with a working fluid enclosed inside the pipe. Various fluids are used in heat pipes and the selected fluid is based upon its saturation temperature and the temperature at which the heat pipe will be functioning.

The variable conductance heat pipe (VCHP), sometimes called a specific variant the gas-controlled or gas-loaded heat pipe, has a unique feature that sets it apart from other types of heat pipe.

This is its ability to maintain a device mounted at the evaporator at a near constant temperature, independent of the amount of power being generated by the by: 1.

A single-artery variable conductance arterial heat pipe was experimentally and numerically studied. To investigate the growth of the noncondensible.

gas supported bubbles, one-dimensional time-dependent conservation equations were solved by using the finite element method. In some applications, it is desirable to have the heat pipe transfer heat in only one direction; that is, when the source is warliier than the sink, the heat pipe would act in its normal high conductance mode, but when the sink temperature rises above the source, the heat pipe.

Variable Conductance Heat Pipe (VCHP) Variable Conductance Heat Pipes (VCHPs) are similar to standard heat pipes, with the addition of a Non-Condensable Gas (NCG). When heat is supplied to the evaporator, the working fluid vaporizes, and travels to the condenser, where it condenses.
