Abstract
The study of one of the components, the heat accumulator, of Low Thrust Cryogenic Propulsion systems (LTCP), is of scientific interest in the framework of ISP-1 project [1]. This device stores thermal energy from the fuel cell that provides electrical energy to the whole system. This thermal energy is employed for the pressurization of the propellant tanks. A numerical model is being developed [2] in order to predict the thermal behaviour of the heat accumulator and having a tool for its design ...
