He explains in an interview the use of FloEFD for his engineering consultancy.
Power Electronics Cooling Calculation at Room Level
The meaning of the Room Level is explained. The working point of the fan can be evaluated using CFD calculations. The heat transfer is not calculated for reasons of cost and because the electrical losses are insufficiently known. The ventilation of the components is evaluated using the streamlines, the flow vectors and the pressure distribution.
The frequency converter and the IGBT chips need cooling, The value of the thermal resistance of the Thermal Interface Materials influences the results. Set-up a transient case for low frequencies.
recorded during the Integrated Electrical Solutions Forum 2014 in Munich. The heat sink consists of a water-cooled plate made of aluminum. A parameter variation analysis of the water cooling was carried out with FloEFD for Catia in order to find out the best geometry parameters such as size, number and height of the cooling fins.
recorded during the Integrated Electrical Solutions Forum 2014 in Munich. Different winding configurations of the motor. Bar windings are simulated with their copper and insulation layers whereas the composite wire winding is simulated by assuming equivalent thermal conductivities.
recorded webinar. How to conduct thermal analysis starting from a CAD model; how to input the electrical losses in a FloEFD model.
