Themal management of electronic networks using TLM

S. H. Pulko, D. de Cogan

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review


The heat transfer processes involved in the thermal management of electronic networks are complex. TLM (transmission line modelling) is an implementationally advantageous method of modelling heat transfer and related phenomena. The authors discuss the possibility and appropriateness of using the TLM technique to model aspects of heat dissipation in electronic networks. The following aspects of thermal effects in electronic networks are considered: modelling of heat transfer by conduction, convection and radiation, the incorporation of nonlinear thermal properties; the treatment of numerically stiff problems; modelling of forced air cooling; and modelling of changes of state
