This book is concerned with the simulations of a primary power supply for a cooling system dedicated to cool a prospective mobile ground station mounted on a truck. The need for cooling is justified by thermal effects on the sensitivity and lifespan of the microwave amplifier in one hand and the comfort of mission operators aboard the mobile ground station especially in hot seasons on the other hand. Therefore, to be efficient, a microwave amplifier, also known as low noise amplifier should allow the lowest thermal noise possible. In this study case, the MSP430-VDG-160 was based on and a study of thermal noise effects was conducted through a LabVIEW-based graphical user interface (GUI) and MATLAB simulations. As research indicates the possibility of minimising thermal noise using cooling techniques, the literature suggested that a solar electric vapour compression system supplied with solar panels could suit the best to the application. To ensure consistent power supply regardless the…
