1 Loop Heat Pipe: Simple Thermodynamic

Authors: Emad Elnajjar, Mohammad Hamdan

Abstract:

The LHP is a two-phase device with extremely high effective thermal conductivity that utilizes the thermodynamic pressure difference to circulate a cooling fluid. A thermodynamics analytical model is developed to explore different parameters effects on a Loop Heat Pipe (LHP).. The effects of pipe length, pipe diameter, condenser temperature, and heat load are reported. As pipe length increases and/or pipe diameter decreases, a higher temperature is expected in the evaporator.

Keywords: passive cooling, loop heat pipe, LHP, CapillaryForce
