Power Electronics Thermal Control (Presentation)

Research output: NRELPresentation


Thermal management plays an important part in the cost of electric drives in terms of power electronics packaging. Very promising results have been obtained by using microporous coatings and skived surfaces in conjunction with single-phase and two-phase flows. Sintered materials and thermoplastics with embedded fibers show significant promise as thermal interface materials, or TIMs. Appropriatecooling technologies depend on the power electronics package application and reliability.
