Work performed on the Solar Collector Thermal Power System SCTPS Program from 16 August 1971 to 28 June 1974 is presented. Volume I contains the system analysis for a solar collector thermal power system supplying thermal energy to a Vuilleumier cooler that is carried on a BMS type satellite. The analysis covers specific requirements of individual components of the power system, including the solar collector, heat pipes, and the thermal energy storage system. An extensive bibliography of pertinent heat transfer, solar collectors, and space power system reports is a part of this volume.
