An Encapsulated Electrode for EHD Application

Print Save as PDF


The Electrohydrodynamic (EHD) technique is a new and promising technique which has proven potential for pumping in the absence of any moving mechanical parts. Also, the EHD effect has demonstrated significantly enhanced heat transfer. The combination of these two capabilities makes the use of the EHD a viable emerging technology for high-performance electronic cooling applications. Due to its lack of moving parts, this technology is highly reliable and does not require maintenance. Low cost and low power consumption are additional benefits. Its applicability to heat transfer enhancement of industrially significant substances such as air, refrigerants, and certain aviation fuels has already been demonstrated.
