In mechatronic systems basically electromagnetical-, thermal-, mechanical- or fluid -effects and their interactions occur. For the efficient optimal design of those systems it's essential to take into account those effects. This leads to a reduced number of prototypes and shortens the time to market.
Increasing power density in power electronics applications requires optimum design of the cooling system. Finding the optimum design by manufacturing prototypes is often difficult, time consuming and expensive due to the large number of variable parameters. The choice of the optimal heat sink-fan combination can be assisted by a number of different… (More)
