|Thermal Management of COB LED Arrays Using an Advanced Cooling Technology|
|Keywords: thermal management, led arrays, advanced cooling|
|The use of LEDs for the general illumination market has increased significantly in the last few years. A portion of the growth is being driven by the use of COB LED arrays. COB LED arrays are a viable option for use in many lighting market segments such as track, spot, and high bay lighting because they produce a single source point of light and are capable of producing high lumen output with tight beam angles and greater color consistency. Thermal management for LED luminaires utilizing COB LED Arrays must balance form and function and meet performance, cost, and aesthetic requirements. This presentation will provide an overview of COB LED array technology, application specific requirements, and thermal management options for COB LED Arrays with a focus on synthetic jets. Synthetic jets are an advanced cooling technology which utilizes targeted turbulent airflow for high efficiency cooling.|
