Conduction cooling is one of the most effective cooling methods for power devices. By using this method, heat can be effectively conducted away from the device, keeping it cool and operating at peak efficiency. This cooling method is often used in high-powered devices such as lasers and power amplifiers.
How it works
These devices utilise external metal structures, which act as a large heat sink surface for dissipation of internal energy. In some conduction power supplies, liquid cooled plates are made up of serpentine channels through which liquid circulates for removing the unwanted heat. The conduction process is generally classified into three categories: Ionic Conduction, Electric Conduction and Heat Conduction.
