Development of a hybrid PCM-air heat sink Academic Article uri icon


  • ABSTRACT The present study deals with the transient thermal management of electro- optical equipment using the phasechange materials (PCMs). These materials can absorb large amounts of heat without significant rise of their temperature during the melting process. This effect is attractive for using in the passive thermal management of portable electro- optical systems, particularly those where the device is intended to operate in the periodic regime, or where the relatively short stages of high power dissipation are followed by long …
