Computed tomography (CT) is a fast and non-destructive measurement method with an increasing industrial application area that demands powerful X-ray sources. Depending on factors, like the measurement settings, the environmental conditions and the effectiveness of the installed cooling system, the dissipated heat of the X-ray source can influence the measurement. In this contribution a mitigation strategy will be described, which approximates the thermal behaviour of an X-ray source in order to derive a task specific warm-up time that reduces the temperature difference during a CT measurement.
