An experimental study on the cooling characteristics of electronic cabinet Park, Jong-Heung; Lee, Jae-Heon;
High-power electronic chips have been advanced to such an extent that the heat dissipation capability of a system design has become one of the primary limiting factors. Therefore, thermal design must be considered in the early stage of the electronic system development. In present paper, the results of an experimental study on the forced convection cooling are presented to evaluate cooling performance of an electronic cabinet which in generally used for telecommunication system. Temperatures and thermal resistances are applied to compare the heat transfer characteristics for various locations of a fan unit as well as various configuration of non-uniform powering modules. As a result, the optimal configuration of a fan unit and powering configuration is suggested for the effective thermal design of telecommunication system.
