Abstract

With increase in demand for efficient cooling technologies in electronic systems, use of microchannels with liquid metals as cooling medium has gained significant attention. To analyze the effect of various geometrical parameters on microchannel performance with such coolant, Taguchi Orthogonal Arrays are used in this study. To replicate the results for simulation, external noise is introduced in two parameters, channel width and depth. In addition, channel wall and base thickness along with type of material affecting the performance is also analyzed. Results show that channel width, height and substrate thickness at the base are the prime factors of concern. In addition, interactive effect of wall and base thickness is also found to affect the performance significantly and their low values for optimum performance is recommended.
