Some configurations of cooling systems based on two-phase loops with control of the fl ow rate of the liquid and steam in them as well as experimental data obtained with these systems are presented. A model of an ejector-assisted loop heat pipe has been developed, and the results of calculations with it were compared with the corresponding experimental data.
