Cooling of Electronics

Categories: FloEFD, FloTHERM, FloVENT

This course will help you to prevent expensive redesigns and a delayed market introduction. Thermal management needs to be part of the design process from the early start. This course introduces thermal design and cooling of the electronic components, modules and systems from an industrial point of view. View course details ↓

Course Highlights

This course introduces thermal design and cooling of the electronic components, modules and systems from an industrial point of view. This view is relevant for many applications, such as semiconductors, power electronics, and recently lighting through the accelerated introduction of LED’s. Two very experienced Instructors teach the participants to solve the thermal problems they encounter during all levels of the product creation process.

The course is a balanced mixture between theory and practice. The participants are requested to fill out an intake form so that the Instructors can make use of the knowledge of their background during the course. Real-life cases obtained from participants themselves, are prepared by the Instructors and are used to demonstrate the application of the course principles during the final day.

You will learn how to

  • Physics of heat transfer
  • Thermal specifications and requirements
  • Numerical and experimental solutions
  • Timely ways of working


Miniaturization and/or integration of more and more functionality in products cause(s) a significant increase in power density and therefore higher temperature levels in products. High temperatures have a negative influence on performance, reliability and safety. Because early knowledge of potential thermal related problems is imperative to reduce redesigns and time-to-market, thermal management should be integrated in the product design process. The final half day is spent on a case study in which the thermal know-how is applied.

  • Theory of heat transfer mechanisms
  • Exercises
  • Thermal specifications and requirements, reliablility issues
  • Timely ways of working
  • Rules-of-thumb
  • Hand calculations
  • Numerical analysis
  • Overview of (advanced) cooling technologies
  • Practical examples
  • Experimental anaylsis
  • Discussion of practical problems delivered by attendees
  • Case studies
