High-powered electronics, in increased use each day, dissipate large amounts of heat. Effective cooling of these electronics is becoming more critical to meet performance requirements. The industry standard of air-cooled heat exchangers is reaching its cooling capacity. Cold plate evaporators (two-phase evaporator systems) offer the most promising solution to this increasingly difficult heat management issue. My research focuses on dynamical modeling of free-standing, as well as systems of, cold-plate evaporators for the purpose of designing effective control mechanisms to reduce heat flux and cool electronics more efficiently.
My previous research involved making Thermosys more user-friendly. Specifically, I improved the thermostatic expansion valve model parameters to better align with manufacturer data sheets.
