Environmental tests 環境測試 (updated: 01/23/2015)

The environmental test facilities in the SPL are not used to provide certificates. To meet requirements of quality assurance, parts, materials, and processes in designs and fabrications are evaluated by trial and error, not by a theoretical model. Eventually the payloads are required for space agencies to perform well-conditioned tests. Five fundamental environmental tests were implemented as follows:

  • Plasma Injection Test (PIT): Space Plasma Simulation Chamber, SPSC, is used to develop and test space payloads in a space plasma environment. It is also used to demo and teach students to understand plasma. A monitoring system, a residual gas analyzer, a turn table, and a photonic multi-channel analyzer had been installed to enhance its functionality.

    電漿施放測試:太空電漿模擬艙提供太空電漿環境,發展與測試太空酬載,可用於教學與展示產生電漿與運作。目前安置監控系統、氣體分析儀、旋轉台、與光譜儀強化其功能。

  • Temperature Cycling Test (TCT): A temperature source can be combined with a suitable thermal chamber (a thermal cap for a small DUT but with rapid cycling or a portable front-load chamber for a big DUT but with slow cycling) to perform temperature cycling test in an optimal condition.

    溫度循環測試:溫度源可搭配適當的溫度櫃達成最佳的溫度循環測試環境。

  • Thermal Vacuum Test (TVT, restricted access): Due to limited funding, the test was constructed with the Space Plasma Simulation Chamber first. Fortunately, we received a vacuum chamber donated by Prof. Minami, Osaka City University, to assist space science development in Taiwan and used for thermal vacuum test. Two chambers are capable to perform different temperature cycles in parallel.

  • Vibration Test (VT): The facility can perform sine vibration and random vibration test according to the specification defined for test article.
