Title
(EN) PARTICLE ACCELERATOR WITH A HEAT PIPE SUPPORTING COMPONENTS OF A HIGH VOLTAGE POWER SUPPLY
(FR) ACCÉLÉRATEUR DE PARTICULES À CALODUC PORTANT DES ÉLÉMENTS D'UNE ALIMENTATION À HAUTE TENSION
Abstract
(EN)
A pulsed neutron generator includes neutron tube and a high voltage power supply. High voltage power supply includes a bulkhead and plurality of electronic components electrically connected between the bulkhead and the target of the neutron tube. A heat pipe is provided in thermal contact with the target and has a housing portion with an exterior surface supporting the plurality of electronic components of the high voltage power supply. Heat pipe includes wick and heat transfer fluid disposed within the housing portion. The wick for recirculates the heat transfer fluid within the housing portion in order to transfer heat away from the target preferably to the bulkhead for dissipation the system housing. Both the wick and heat transfer fluid are preferably realized from materials that have low electrical conductivity. The heat pipe can also be part of other-type particle accelerators, such as x-ray sources and gamma-ray sources.

La présente invention concerne un générateur de neutrons pulsés comprenant un tube générateur de neutrons et une alimentation à haute tension. L'alimentation à haute tension comprend une cloison et plusieurs composants électroniques connectés électriquement entre la cloison et la cible du tube générateur de neutrons. Un caloduc est en contact thermique avec la cible et présente une partie de boîtier dotée d'une surface extérieure portant la pluralité de composants électroniques de l'alimentation à haute tension. Le caloduc comprend une mèche et un fluide de transfert de chaleur disposés dans la partie de boîtier. La mèche est destinée à remettre en circulation le fluide de transfert de chaleur dans la partie de boîtier afin de transférer la chaleur à distance de la cible de préférence vers la cloison pour la dissipation thermique du boîtier du système. La mèche et le fluide de transfert de chaleur sont réalisés de préférence à partir de matériaux présentant une faible conductivité électrique. Le caloduc peut également faire partie d'accélérateurs de particules d'un autre type, tels que des sources de rayons x et des sources de rayons gamma.
