Two-phase cooling system

  • 30-Apr-2009 01:57 EDT


Suitable for high-temperature renewable-energy applications, the two-phase cooling system from Parker Hannifin safely and efficiently manages the heat of high-power electronics. Precision electronics cooling system technology gives electronic design platforms up to twice the power density in half the space. The maintenance-free system can decrease the size of a wind turbine’s power system or extend the range of a hybrid vehicle. Using a vaporizable dielectric fluid, the system boils fluid across the base of the silicon chip, converting it to gas and stabilizing the system’s high temperatures, nullifying cooling limits of water-based systems. The technology is also suitable for industrial and military applications.

The engine maker used the ConExpo 2017 stage to announce its intention to produce a dual-fuel capable (natural gas and propane) off-highway engine by mid-2018, leveraging its already-in-production on-highway CNG truck engine.
Active flow control devices based on electric plasmas can smooth the turbulent wakes that sweep off the rear edges of truck trailers travelling at highway speeds.
Commercial vehicles are beginning to adopt alternative energy sources, but the transition remains slow. Batteries and an array of renewable fuels are seeing more usage, but costs and infrastructure remain hindrances for these fragmented technologies.
Various levels of electrification, connected solutions and alternative fuels are among the technology pathways that will lead to reductions of CO2, according to AVL's Dr. Marko Dekena. He spoke with Truck & Off-Highway Engineering about a variety of topics ahead of this year's AVL International Commercial Powertrain Conference.
