Thermal Simulation for Design Validation of Electrical Components in Vibration Monitoring Equipment
Pages : 14-18
Estimation of heat dissipation rates and temperature distribution in resistive heating of electrical equipment is typically carried out by analytical methods. The advent of mathematical modelling through simulation coupled with higher computational ability enabled faster analysis of flow and heat patterns. 3D numerical simulation is one such method which helps estimate the temperature and flow patterns in complex 3D geometries. This paper describes thermo hydraulic simulation of different scenarios to predict the temperature distribution of various components inside a vibration monitoring system. The quantitative results help in design validation and selection of vibration monitoring system with a better design.
