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.
Cooling of a Wind Power Station IGBT
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.
Parametric Study of an IGBT Cold Plate Geometry in a
Winding Parameter Variations for the Cooling of an Electrical Motor
recorded during the Integrated Electrical Solutions Forum 2014 in Munich.
Different winding configurations have been calculated. The hairpin windings are modeled with copper bars and layers of insulation; the wire windings are simulated as anisotropic blocks with empirical values of thermal conductivity. The highest temperatures are located and can be reduced. As a measure, the conventional insulation in the rotor and stator was replaced with high thermally conductive insulation.
Cooling of Electrical Machines
recorded webinar. Large electrical machines (motors, generators and transformers) need cooling. It is explained how to set up a flow simulation with conjugate heat transfer (CHT) in FloEFD. Optimization potentials and possible parameter variations are discussed.
