Scaling of flow characteristics and power consumption with profile height for miniature centrifugal fans

Abstract:

This paper addresses issues that relate to downscaling the height of centrifugal fans for application in low profile technologies, such as the cooling of portable power electronics. The parameters studied throughout the paper include flow rate, pressure rise and power consumption characteristics. The former two of these are measured using a fan characterization rig and the latter by directly measuring the power supplied to the fan. These are studied for fans ranging in diameter from 15 to 30m...
