Solar cell panel and satellite using it



(57)【要約】 【課題】水星の如く太陽に近い軌道の惑星の探査衛星に 必要とする優れた放熱特性を有する太陽電池パネル及び それを使用する人工衛星を提供すること。 【解決手段】太陽電池パネル10は夫々段状部で連結さ れた同心多角形環状部1a、1b、…1nを有するパネ ル1の環状部の表面に太陽電池2を被着形成し、残りの 部分にラジエータ3、4、5を被着形成して構成する。 人工衛星20は、この太陽電池パネル10の内側に支柱 6で連結された宇宙機本体7により構成される。
PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To be used for a satellite orbiting the Mercury, Venus, etc., near the sun and improve heat radiation characteristics by forming a solar cell attached to the surface of a polygonal ring part concentric to a panel and forming radiators attached to a part except for the surface of the polygonal ring part concentric to the panel. SOLUTION: A plurality of concentric annulus parts are coupled with a panel 1 for a solar cell panel 10 in staged parts respectively and solar cells 2 are attached to the concentric annulus parts. These solar cells 2 are connected in series and parallel to each other by a lead wire so as to provide a prescribed power. Radiators 3, 4, 5 which are attached to the concentric annulus parts or the staged parts respectively in the rear face of the panel 1 are formed of a material superior in heat radiation characteristics such as silver deposited Teflon. In this satellite 20, a support 6 is installed in the center of the solar cell panel 10 and a spacecraft main body 7 is fixed to one end of the support 6. COPYRIGHT: (C)1998,JPO
