FY17 GRC: Testing Power Systems for Venus

Metadata Updated: February 28, 2019

Earth[HTML_REMOVED]s sister planet, Venus, is the most similar to Earth in size and the closest to Earth in location, but is one of the most hostile surface environments in the solar system. Nevertheless, Venus is a planet of great scientific interest. A number of advances in high temperature technology allow the possibility of designing a lander which can operate on the surface of Venus. The ability of the Glenn Extreme Environment Rig (GEER) to simulate Venus surface conditions, along with Glenn[HTML_REMOVED]s expertise in high-temperature materials, electronics, and components, give Glenn unexcelled capabilities in developing and testing technologies for Venus. In this project, we aimed to[HTML_REMOVED]test power supply components for Venus. However, all missions require power to operate, and a power system that can operate in the high temperature (450[HTML_REMOVED]C), high pressure (about 92 bar) corrosive environment has not yet been demonstrated.[HTML_REMOVED]The goal addressed was to demonstrate the components for the power system for a Venus surface mission, an enabling technology for Venus exploration.
