Power Electronics
High Performance Air-Cooled Heat Sinks Integrating Graphite Based Materials

Overview

The thermal management of the power electronics cooling in the aircraft is getting more attention in the recent years due to the progressive implementation of electrical systems, especially in the framework of the more electrical aircraft, one of Clean Sky framework research activities to allow Europe to lead the transition to more environmental friendly aircraft in the future. The reference innovative trend in the cooling of power electronics and other semiconductor devices has been to migrate from air cooled solutions to liquid cooled or two-phase flow solutions, as these being able to reach higher levels of heat transfer density and keep electronics temperatures within the required limits.
