Abstract

In this paper, a MATLab code is written to obtain the fluctuation of heat flux as a function of time on a nano satellite and these values are input into ANSYS where the analysis is performed on the primary structure and panels. The various flux and temperature values are obtained from a transient thermal analysis and validated to see if the structure can take the thermal stress induced and check if the working temperature of the internal components is maintained. Use of multi layer insulation (MLI) blankets and paints are suggested to maintain the same.
