There are not only large amounts of energy, but also many different kinds of energy in manned spacecraft, which provide chance to optimize a thermal management system in the spacecraft. When water in atmosphere in pressured cabins was removed, waste heat in atmosphere was removed synchronously. Due to this phenomenon, a thermal management system, in which heat transfer in human zone and electrical equipment zone was considered together, was presented here. In the thermal management system, air loops in human zone and electrical equipments zone was reconstructed to decouple the waste heat and water removing processes, improve the heat exchange efficiency and make it possible to use waste heat produced by electrical equipments in other cabin with insufficient energy.
