Heinrich Cap, Managing Director of SEPA EUROPE GmbH, has recorded his experience accumulated over many years in the field of fans and thermal management in this book.
It is intended as a tool for electronics designers and design engineers. Based on the known principles of electrical engineering and electronics, it conveys the problems involved in the cooling of electronics, in particular of component cooling to the reader in a manner that allows results to be achieved through relatively simple calculations or models or by providing parameters that are essential for simulation purposes.
Focus is placed on DC voltage fans which are used virtually without exception for the cooling of components.
A matter of concern to the author is also to demonstrate that fans when correctly used do not represent a quality risk but can actually also improve the reliability of a device.
A brief explanation of the most important terms frequently used in conjunction with the heating of components complements the information provided in this pocket book.
