PowerElectronicsUK: Thermal Management Workshop

21st September 2017 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm


Thank you to our Host:

Market requirements for power electronics and RF power devices are driver higher power densities and the need to operate in higher temperature environments. As a result, thermal management of devices and systems is a key design and manufacturing challenge.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together the power electronics and power RF communities to discuss trends and  directions in device and systems thermal management to encourage best practice and the development of new supply chain collaborations in R&D.

Topics within scope include:

  • The integration of new high performance materials into systems for thermal management and harsh environment performance.
  • Active cooling and thermal management designs and configuration in power electronics and power RF systems
  • Passive cooling mechanisms and designs.
  • Thermal modelling and characterisation
