POWER ELECTRONICS COOLING GALLERIES

POWER ELECTRONICS COOLING GALLERIES

As part of a project to develop a high power 70kW inverter for use in a commercial aircraft engines, we had to model both heat transfer and the fluid flow.

The fluid flow properties of the coolant, which in this case was aviation fuel. The success of the modelling led us to design a complex cooling gallery that had to be manufactured through 3D laser sintering.
