A proposed apparatus for controlling temperatures from −190 deg to +650 deg with an estimated accuracy of 0.001 deg C is described. The apparatus utilizes helium as the heat transfer medium. The selection of the gain constants of the controller depends upon the system parameters. The hypothetical case of a solid cylindrical block with an integral plus proportional controller is considered, the differential equations are set up, and a graphical scheme is presented for the selection of the controller constants.
