“Thermal Design and Management of High Power LEDs” will explain what options currently exist for cooling LEDs and why thermal management is important for the design of lamps based on LEDs. Through specific case studies, Engelberts will show how the right engineering design creates a more efficient product at a lower cost.
Because LED’s are thermally and electrically like a semiconductor, engineers and lighting professionals still have their minds wrapped around using incandescent lights instead of LEDs. Engelberts comments on this issue; “Over the past ten years we are seeing far less of this [incandescent]
Engelberts presentation will focus on “the required approach” to solving a thermal management problem. “You have to look from three perspectives to insure you have the right approach”, Engelberts’ states. First, look at the problem from an analytical model. Second, do some CFD and get a computational read on your solution. Third, perform experiments with your proposed solution. With these three methods you can create good thermal designs, and you come up with thermal designs that are correct the first time. The best approach is not this, “try this or that” and see what happens.
