MSc Thesis Study:
Power Stage Design And Implementation of A Deployment Mechanism Driver For Space Applications (M.Sc, Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Mirzahan Hızal,February 2012. Submitted to The Graduate School Of Natural and Applied Sciences of Middle East Technical University)
In the field of the thesis study, a deployment mechanism driver for general space application usage is designed and manufactured under the light of previous works performed in this area. In order to get knowledge on the basics of deployment mechanisms and their drivers, various actuators such as pyro technics, HOP, SMA and thermal knives are studied and the usage of these systems in the current and previous space applications are compared both in advantages and disadvantages.
