Abstract

This article describes a system for supplying chilled air through a duct to a desired application by use of the cooling capabilities of multiple thermo-electric devices. The disclosed system of chilled air supply consists of thermo- electric units mounted on an air duct, either rectangular or circular in cross-section, which are mechanically attached to fins in the air flow, as shown in the figure. Thermo-electric units (devices) are relatively inexpensive, vibration-free, noise-free heat pumps, and can provide low temperature air without the use of bulky air-conditioning units. The disclosed system can supply controlled cool air to such as air-cooled TCMs (thermal conduction modules) and electronic card-on-board packages, power supplies, etc.

In-Line Thermal Cooling System

This article describes a system for supplying chilled air through a duct to a desired application by use of the cooling capabilities of multiple thermo-electric devices. The disclosed system of chilled air supply consists of thermo- electric units mounted on an air duct, either rectangular or circular in cross-section, which are mechanically attached to fins in the air flow, as shown in the figure. Thermo- electric units (devices) are relatively inexpensive, vibration-free, noise-free heat pumps, and can provide low temperature air without the use of bulky air- conditioning units. The disclosed system can supply controlled cool air to such as air-cooled TCMs (thermal conduction modules) and electronic card-on-board packages, power supplies, etc., which do not have the required ambient air flow to maintain proper cooling for their reliable performance.
