T0011-P Cryocooler Vibrational Characterization (VASIMR)

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

T0011-P Cryocooler Vibrational Characterization

Determine natural frequency and intensity of vibrations as a function of test parameters (cryocooler power, g-load, mounting arrangement).  This will offer initial design solution for vibration mitigation.  3-axis accelerometers are strategically instrumented throughout experiment to provide comprehensive vibration responses at varying cryocooler power levels.  The cryocooler operation will be monitored by curent and temperature measurements.
