A fuel based thermal management system includes a fuel stabilization system which permits the fuel to exceed the traditional coking temperatures. High temperature components are arranged along the fuel flow path such that even at the higher operating temperatures the fuel operates as a heat sink to transfer heat from high temperature components to the fuel. An optimal high temperature ester-based oil permits an oil-loop to exceed current oil temperature limits and achieve a high temperature to permit efficient rejection of heat to the fuel late in the fu...
What is claimed is: 1. A method of thermal management within a vehicle having a gas turbine engine comprising the steps of: (1) deoxygenating a fuel onboard the vehicle to provide a deoxygenated fuel; (2) communicating the fuel through a first liquid-to-liquid heat exchanger system operable at a first maximum temperature; (3) communicating the deoxygenated fuel through a second liquid-to-liquid heat exchanger system operable at a second maximum temperature, said second maximum temperature greater than said first maximum temperature; communicating the de...
