	%X In space during functioning, a satellite will be heated
up due to the behavior of its components such as power electronics.
In order to prevent problems in the satellite, this heat has to be
released in space thanks to the cooling system. This system consists
of a loop heat pipe (LHP), in which a fluid streams through an
evaporator and a condenser. In the evaporator, the fluid captures the
heat from the satellite and evaporates. Then it flows to the condenser
where it releases the heat and it condenses. In this project, the two
mains parts of a cooling system are studied: the evaporator and the
condenser. The study of the diphasic loop was done starting from
digital simulations carried out under Matlab and Femlab.
