Abstract: Modern requirements to the operational parameters of pre-start thermostating systems require a new approach to their creation or upgrading. Therefore, there is a need to consider the possibilities of using the combined power generation in pre-start thermostating systems. Launch vehicles include the equipment that requires certain temperature conditions for operation, which modifies its characteristics and disrupts normal functioning. The temperature also determines the characteristics of onboard power supplies, the reliability of the engine units and pre-start thermostating systems. For the normal functioning of pre-start thermostating systems, it is necessary to supply various combinations of power for the spacecraft. The recent open access publications were considered, including the combined types of power generation in pre-start thermostating systems. The thermostating systems of spacecrafts should have several sources of power, i.e. the combined power generation in pre-start thermostating systems has not been considered yet. The examination of the possibilities of using the combined power generation in pre-start thermostating systems. The thermostatic systems for performing the functions of pre-start thermostating systems are to have several sources of energy that will increase the reliability of their operation. Energy can also be supplied from an external source, which is essential for pre-start thermostating systems, especially in launch units. The possibilities of using the combined power generation in pre-start thermostating systems are considered, providing the reliability increase of their functioning. The application of mechanical, thermal, electrochemical and solar power plants, as well as the use of nuclear isotope and reactor power plants is suggested.
