Paper Abstract

The Office of Aeronautics and Space Technology has selected the Space Station Electrical Power System as one of the systems that will participate in the Systems Autonomy Demonstration Project(SADP) 1990 Power/Thermal Demonstration. The purpose of this demonstration is the autonomous operation of two major Space Station systems through the application of cooperating knowledge-based systems technology. Lewis Research Center(LeRC) and Marshall Space Flight Center(MSFC) will first jointly develop an autonomous power system using existing Space Station testbed facilities at each center. The subsequent 1990 power-thermal demonstrationwill then involve the cooperative operation of the LeRC/MSFC power system with the Johnson Space Center(JSC)'s thermal control and DMS/OMS testbed facilities. The testbeds and expert systems at each of the NASA centers will be interconnected via communication links. The appropriate knowledge-based technology will be developed for each testbed and applied to problems requiring inter-system cooperation. Primary emphasis will be focused on failure detection and classification, system reconfiguration, planning and scheduling of electrical power resources and integration of knowledge-based and conventional control system software into the design and operation of Space Station testbeds.
