Abstract [en]

Experimental evaluation of several active anti-condensation methods for application in non-hermetic electronics enclosures was performed in harsh climatic conditions, including RH = 70% and T = 43 °C. The studied methods included blowing the air along the exposed surface, combination of blowing and air heating as well as local heating of the exposed surface in natural convection conditions. The purpose was to prevent/remove the dew on/from the exposed surface of a micro-condensation sensor. The difference between the methods was quantified in terms of time for dew removal. The power consumption aspects were discussed. A CFD based optimization methodology was developed to determine the heating profiles for the local anti-condensation PCB heater in a non-hermetic cabinet exposed to the quickly changing climatic conditions. The potential for 60% energy savings was revealed by simulation.

Abstract [en]

A mathematical model of a multi-phase power conversion system composed of modified bridge-elements (B-system) capable for parallel computation has been developed. Experimental validation on the example of a power system including a synchronous generator and an AC-DC rectifier has been performed. A mathematical algorithm for B-system assembly and steps to obtain mathematical model of the B-system have been developed. Integration of mathematical models of conversion system into the complete model of a multi-phase power system has been explained and evaluation of computational efficiency of parallel computation techniques for the developed model of an AC-DC-AC converter has been performed. The presented modelling method can be employed in the design phase of smart grids, for power quality and conducted emission analysis.

Abstract [en]

This paper proposes a novel power module concept specially designed for highly reliable silicon carbide power devices for medium- and high-power applications. The concept consists of two clamped structures: 1) a press-pack power stage accommodating silicon carbide power switch dies, and 2) perpendicularly clamped press-pack heatsinks, in which, the heatsinks are in contact with electrically insulated case plates of the power stage. The concept enables bondless package with symmetric double-sided cooling of the dies and allows for an order of magnitude higher clamping force on the heatsinks than what can be applied on the dies. The concept has been evaluated in a first demonstrator (half-bridge configuration with ten paralleled silicon carbide dies in each position). Experimental methodologies, setups, and procedures have been presented. The commutation loop inductance is approximately 9 nH at 78 kHz. The junction-to-case thermal resistance is approximately 0.028 K/W. Furthermore, a simplified 3D finite element thermomechanical model representing the center unit of the demonstrator, has been established for the purpose of future optimization. The accuracy of the simulated temperatures is within 4 % compared to the measurements. Finally, a 3D thermomechanical stress distribution map has been obtained for the simplified model of the demonstrator.

Abstract [en]

The present work provides validation of the ultimate tensile strength computational models, based on full-scale lamellar graphite iron casting process simulation, against previously obtained experimental data. Microstructure models have been combined with modified Griffith and Hall–Petch equations, and incorporated into casting simulation software, to enable the strength prediction for four pearlitic lamellar cast iron alloys with various carbon contents. The results show that the developed models can be successfully applied within the strength prediction methodology along with the simulation tools, for a wide range of carbon contents and for different solidification rates typical for both thin-and thick-walled complex-shaped iron castings.

Abstract [en]

The influence of electroplating parameters on throwing power (TP) is studied in additive-free silver cyanide solutions under direct current and pulse reverse electroplating conditions. It is found that the best TP is obtained when no agitation of the electrolyte is applied. The most important parameters for controlling the TP are the cathodic current density, the anodic to cathodic charge ratio, and the ratio between the anodic and cathodic current densities. Guidelines for process optimisation are given.

Abstract [en]

A methodology for evaluation of transient performance of, and comparison between plate heat exchanger and plate-fin-and-tube heat exchanger was developed and realized, including experiment and 3-D simulation. Heat transfer from water to a gas medium was addressed. The heated gas volume was the same for both heat exchanger designs. This was achieved by placing the plate-fin-and-tube heat exchanger into enclosure. The volume average temperature of the gas as function of time was computed. Estimated material cost for the studied designs was at least seven times lower than for the stainless steel plate heat exchanger. The performance of the selected plate-fin-and-tube heat exchanger design was found comparable to the plate heat exchanger, when both fin and tube materials were set to Al, and the enclosure was a light-weight thermal insulator. Transient behavior of the studied heat exchangers should be of interest for micro-grid applications, but also for thermal management in electronic cabinets and data centers.

Abstract [en]

Thermal resistance and temperature distribution for high-power AlGaInN LED chip-on-board arrays in blue and white versions were measured by different methods and tools. The p-n junction temperature was determined through measuring a temperature-dependent forward voltage drop on the p-n junction, at a low measuring current after applying a high heating current. Furthermore, the infrared thermal imaging technique was employed to obtain the temperature map for the test object. A steady-state 3D computational model of the experimental setup was created including temperature-dependent power dissipation in the LED chips and partitioned interfacial thermal resistance between the heatsink and the LED array. Simulations of the heat transfer in the LED array were performed to further investigate temperature gradients observed in the measurements.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents an experimental methodology for the characterization of thermomechanical displacement and friction properties in a free-floating press-pack structure, and evaluation of the tensile stress on the semiconductor die through simulation of different mechanical and thermal loading conditions. The press-pack structure consists of a single silver-metallized (1 μm) silicon carbide die (400 μm) in contact with rhodium-coated (0.4 μm) molybdenum square plates. The thermomechanical displacements in the press-pack structure have been obtained using the digital image correlation technique, and the mean random error has been $± $0.1 μm, which is approximately 10 ppm of the measured length (10.5 mm). The developed experimental method has led to an analytical estimation of friction coefficients on the interfaces' silicon carbide-molybdenum and molybdenum-copper. The results demonstrate that the thin silver layer behaves as a solid film lubricant. A 2-D finite-element model representing the experimental setup has been implemented. The difference in displacement between measurement and simulation is less than 8%. Furthermore, the coinfluence of the design parameters on the thermomechanical performance of the stacked structure has been analyzed through simulations. Finally, design guidelines to reduce the tensile stress on the silicon carbide die have been proposed regarding free-floating press-pack power electronics packaging.

Abstract [en]

RF power amplifier demonstrators containing each one GaN-on-SiC, HEMT, CHZ015AQEG, from UMS in SMD quad-flat no-leads package (QFN) were subjected to thermal cycles (TC) and power cycles (PC) followed by electrical, thermal and structural evaluation. Two types of solders i.e. Sn63Pb36Ag2 and lead-free SnAgCu (SAC305) and two types of TIM materials (NanoTIM and TgonTM 805) for PCB attachment to liquid cold plate were tested for thermomechanical reliability. Changes in electrical performance of the devices namely reduction of the current saturation value, threshold voltage shift, increase of the leakage current and degradation of the HF performance were observed as a result of an accumulated current stress during PC. No significant changes in the investigated solder or TIM materials were observed.

Abstract [en]

The effect of fillets formed between the base and plate fins of rheocast aluminium heatsinks on the thermal resistance of the heatsinks has been quantified by simulation. Simulation methodology, including sequential optimization has been developed in order to determine hotspot distributions where the fillets have the maximum effect. Combination of different fillet dimensions with various base thickness levels and aluminium alloys having inhomogeneous thermal conductivity have been investigated. For the studied cases, the effect of fillets on heatsink thermal resistance differs from negligible to 6%. The results would guide thermal designers on contribution of fillets to the heat transfer in multi-fin heatsinks for natural convection.
