|Dynamically Controlled Flow Loop to Benchmark Rapid Transient Cooling Utilizing Flash Boiling for High Heat Flux Electronic Systems|
|Keywords: flow loop, high heat flux, rapid transient cooling|
|Transient thermal systems with high-heat-flux components present significant challenges. Flash cooling is a promising phenomenon to help mitigate the thermal challenges of future electronic components. We present a flow loop in this work to provide a flexible and reliable setup to investigate and benchmark flash cooling. It is dynamically controlled through LabVIEW workbench using a micro-controller from National Instruments to facilitate transient response of the system. The quick response of the loop is achieved with the help of flow control components with a response time of few milliseconds. The setup is compatible with certain promising fluids for flash cooling and the connections are built in a manner that allows quick replacement of components including the test device. Being a closed loop system with a water-cooled condenser, it allows continuous operation of the system. The flow loop facilitates deeper understanding of the advantages and limitations of flash cooling for future electronic applications.|
