Abstract

A solution scheme is presented for minimization of refrigeration power required for mechanical supports in cryogenic systems where refrigeration shields at intermediate temperatures are installed along the supports. The total refrigeration power requirements is minimized in terms of the temperatures and locations of the shields. The scheme involves the simultaneous solution of algebraic equations and is simpler than previous methods. Closed-form solutions for optimal shield temperatures and locations are presented for several specific cases of engineering interest.
