Savings in Cooling Energy with a Thermal Management System for LED Lighting in Office Buildings

by Byung-Lip Ahn 1,2,Ji-Woo Park 1,Seunghwan Yoo 1,Jonghun Kim 1,Seung-Bok Leigh 2 andCheol-Yong Jang 1,* Abstract Light-emitting diode (LED) lighting should be considered for lighting efficiency enhancement, however, waste heat from light-emitting diode (LED) lighting increases the internal cooling load during the summer season. In order to solve this problem we propose a thermal management system for light-emitting diode (LED) lighting with a

Experimental investigation for thermal performance enhancement of various heat sinks using Al2O3 NePCM for cooling of electronic devices

Imran Zahid ab, M. Farhan a, M. Farooq a, M. Asim a, M. Imran c Abstract Electronic devices are being used extensively for different applications, where the thermal management of these devices is still a critical challenge due to rapid miniaturization, high heat flux and constantly rising temperature. Phase change materials (PCMs) based thermal management is adopted, but the low thermal conductivity limits their use in temperature-controlled electronic devices. Nano-enhanced phase change materials

Induction motors with copper rotor: a new opportunity for increasing motor efficiency

Induction motors with copper rotor: a new opportunity for increasing motor efficiency

ABSTRACT The copper rotor induction motor (CURIM) was recently introduced because it has lower rotor fusion losses than the aluminum rotor (ALRIM). Furthermore, with CURIM, it is easier to reach IE4 and IE5 efficiency levels. The CURIM is advantageous for compact motors, escalators, and electric vehicle applications. However, CURIMs present slip, power factor, temperature increase,

Al Alloys and Manufacturing Processes for Lightweight Applications in Electric Vehicles

Abstract. Due to increasing environmental concerns, battery-powered electric vehicles (BEV) have gained popularity in the automotive for the past few years. An induction motor is an essential component of the propulsion system in integrated BEVs working on different operating conditions [1]. Since a rotor of the induction motor is configured with an electrical sheet, a

A heuristic approach to meet geometric tolerance in High Pressure Die Casting

A heuristic approach to meet geometric tolerance in High Pressure Die Casting

G.CampatelliA.Scippa Abstract In High Pressure Die Casting (HPDC), geometrical distortions usually happen during the cooling phase, due to the reduced cooling time and the high thermal gradient inside the product itself. This phenomenon affects most the thin walled products. The usual die design practice considers only the linear shrinking of the product during the cooling as a consequence of
