  2. Method Of Simulating Flow-Through Area Of A Pressure Regulator

    Method Of Simulating Flow-Through Area Of A Pressure Regulator

    NASA Langley has developed a software technology for modeling the fluid flow behavior of an in-line mechanical pressure regulator within a fluid simulation system. The algorithms and code were developed to accurately account for transient flow behaviors that occur at pressure regulators, something static models do not.

  4. Low Power, High Voltage Power Supply with Fast Rise/Fall Time

    Low Power, High Voltage Power Supply with Fast Rise/Fall Time

    NASA has developed a programmable HVPS that does not require a preload. The closed-loop design features two feedback loops to control the output voltage. The first loop controls the output of the pre-regulator while the output stage of the power supply is inactive. The second loop controls the output stage of the HVPS after the output has been activated, eliminating the need for a preload.
