PROBLEM 1.71 (Cont.) With the paste condition ( g,p k = 0.12 W/m K), c T = 39.9 ° C. As expected, the effect of the conductive paste is to improve the coupling between the circuit board and the case. Hence, c T decreases. (b) Using the keyboard to enter model equations into the workspace, IHT has been used to perform the desired calculations. For values of k = 200 and 400 W/m K and convection coefficients in the range from 50 to 250 W/m 2 K, the energy balance equation may be used to compute the power dissipation for a maximum allowable case temperature of 40 ° C. 50 100 150 200 250 Convection coefficient, h(W/m^2.K) 0.3 0.4 0.5 0.6 0.7 Power dissipation, Edotg(W) kl = 400 W/m.K kl = 200 W/m.K As indicated by the energy balance, the power dissipation increases linearly with increasing h, as well as with increasing k . For h = 250 W/m 2 K (enhanced air cooling) and k = 400 W/m K (copper leads), the transistor may dissipate up to 0.63 W. COMMENTS: Additional benefits may be derived by increasing heat transfer across the gap separating the case from the board, perhaps by inserting a highly conductive material in the gap.
